Of course, he pitched most of his career with the Colorado Rockies, which is not the best place for hurlers.
But the Dodgers are career-fixers, and they have proven it time and time again in recent seasons.
They do it with position players, starters, or relievers alike.
That’s why it isn’t really surprising to see them turn Anderson, a pitcher with considerable raw talent, into an ace.
That is precisely what he looks like now: a frontline pitcher.
There Is No Hotter Pitcher In MLB Right Now
He has been enjoying an amazing streak recently.

That’s some good company, isn’t it?
In his last four games, Anderson has allowed just two runs.
If we move the search to his last three games, there have been nothing but zeroes in the “runs allowed” department.
For the season, he has a 7-0 record, a 2.59 ERA, and a 0.95 WHIP in 55.2 innings.
He has struck out 53 hitters, too.
Anderson has been a breath of fresh air for a rotation that lost several key contributors in the last few months, for various reasons.
The Dodgers certainly hope he can keep up this amazing level of performance.
The 32-year-old is on his way to a career-best season.
