The Dodgers have reportedly released Chris Anderson, their 2013 first-round pick.

The first to break the news was Southern California News Group reporter J.P. Hoornstra on April 1.

Another report surfaced on Tuesday, from Matt Eddy of Baseball America, confirming that Chris Anderson has in fact been released.

Since being drafted in the first round of the 2013 draft, Chris Anderson has had a rough go as a professional.

2016 was another disappointing year for Anderson, who put up a 4.81 ERA. His inflated ERA followed him even when the Dodgers attempted to convert him from a starter to a reliever.

Anderson ended up reaching Double-A as a member of the Tulsa Drillers before being sent back down to the High-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes where he finished his 2016 season. After his release, the 24-year-old is now a free agent and can sign with any team.
