The Atlanta Braves received some tough news as pitcher Ian Anderson is out for the year after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Atlanta Braves Pitcher Ian Anderson received some tough news as he will undergo Tommy John surgery that will sideline for the year. He should be ready for spring training in February 2024.

Anderson had a down year last year and struggled to start the 2023 MLB season.

Anderson was selected by the Braves in the first round (third overall) of the 2016 MLB draft. He made his MLB debut on August 26, 2020, and quickly established himself as a key member of the Braves pitching staff.

Anderson is known for his excellent command and ability to mix pitches effectively. His fastball sits in the low-to-mid 90s, and he also throws a devastating changeup and a sharp curveball. In his rookie season, Anderson posted a 3.38 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 32 innings pitched over six starts.

Anderson also played a key role in the Braves’ 2020 postseason run, where he was named the Most Valuable Player of the National League Championship Series (NLCS). He recorded 18 strikeouts and allowed only two runs in 15.2 innings pitched over three starts in the series.

What are Braves fans saying about the Ian Anderson injury

Sad as the modern dream of Glavine, Maddox, Schmoltz re-imagined in todays game just didnt pan out with Anderson, Fried, Soroka. It looked so good.

Dang that sucks. Hoping that Ian Anderson will have a successful recovery.

Tough loss. A reminder that drafting HS pitching in the 1st rd is the most risky proposition in amateur acquisitions.
