Dodgers News: Brett Anderson Will Begin Mound Work Next Week

The Los Angeles Dodgers took a bit of a gamble on oft-injured lefty Brett Anderson this offseason, singing the 26-year-old to a one-year, $10 million deal. On the plus side, it appears he's right on track to assume his spot in the team's starting rotation at the start of the 2015 MLB season.

Per Drew Silva of Hardball Talk, "J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News writes Wednesday that Anderson has increased his flat-ground work to a distance of 160 feet and is aiming to step atop a mound next week in Arizona."

Anderson told Hoornstra and other Dodgers beat writers on a Wednesday conference call that he's feel good and ready to keep his rehab humming along nicely.

“I feel good,” Anderson said. “I’ve been throwing with Max Scherzer and some other guys at Fischer Sports (a physical therapy institute in the Phoenix area). I should be good to go come spring training.”

While Anderson has a solid 3.73 career ERA, injuries have plagued him in the past half decade as he hasn't topped 100 innings once since 2010.
