While the Los Angeles Dodgers had the day off from games on Tuesday, the minor leaguers had their own to play. Joining them was Brett Anderson, who started against the Brewers Class-A players in order to keep the rotation in order.

In his last start, Anderson struggled through 1.2 innings against the Anaheim Angels while allowing three runs and seven hits. Anderson started a total of three games before Tuesday’s stint.

According to’s Ken Gurnick, Anderson again gave up three runs but did so in a longer session:

Mike Adams also joined Anderson in pitching Tuesday and fared well:

Anderson’s signing came under some criticism given the left-hander’s injury history. He said his arm and body felt good when Spring Training began. Although his last couple of outings weren’t exceptional, manager Don Mattingly isn’t putting much stock into his spring performance.

The Dodgers will be leaning on Anderson a little more in the rotation after it was announced Hyun-Jin Ryu will begin the season on the disabled list.

As for Adams, he is competing for a roster spot in the bullpen. Adams also appeared in three games for the Dodgers while pitching a total of 2.2 innings. He’s allowed three earned runs while also striking out three.
