Dodgers Contract Offer to Tyler Anderson? Insider Expects All-Star to Return

Tyler Anderson had the best year of his career in 2022 as a member of the Dodgers. Anderson was named an All-Star for the first time in his career, and finished the year 15-5 with a 2.57 ERA and 138 strikeouts in a team-high 178.2 innings pitched.

In the postseason, Anderson pitched a dominant and scoreless five innings in Game 4 of the NLDS, before getting pulled at 86 pitches. We all know what happened next.

But this offseason, Anderson is a free agent, and the Dodgers will have the opportunity to bring him back, potentially on a longer deal than the one-year, $8 million one he signed coming into this season.

Our Doug McKain broke down all the Anderson talk, and gave his thoughts on what type of deal the Dodgers should give him.

Dodgers Contract Offer to Tyler Anderson? Insider Expects Anderson to Return, Rotation Questions

Anderson was way too good in 2022 to not bring him back. As of right now, the Dodgers have just Julio Urias, Tony Gonsolin and potentially Dustin May rounding out the starting rotation. Clayton Kershaw is obviously a question mark, but Anderson would bring a ton of consistency to a Dodgers rotation that was plagued by injuries in 2022. To me, it feels like a no-brainer to bring Anderson back in 2023.

Do you think the Dodgers bring back Tyler Anderson next season? And if so, for how long and how much money? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. He pitched with purpose all year. I think a 3 year 40 million contract would be a fair deal.

    1. that’s barely over $10 million a year. Assuminhe can repeat, he deserves more. But that’s the question now, isn’t it? I’d bet on him, even over anyone else on that roster minus Julio. Everyone else is a huge question mark, and risk.

  2. 3 year contract worth $40M, with a mutual 2 year option based mostly on smaller amount and filled with many incentives. Possibly end up as a 5 year deal worth close to $80M. Including th incentives.
