Former Rockies pitcher Tyler Anderson will make his Giants debut tonight against the Dodgers. Anderson signed with the Giants in December and against the Dodgers in his career is 3-5 in 13 starts with a 4.54 ERA with 55 strikeouts.

While with the Rockies he was 18-24 in 73 games and had 367 strikeouts against 1683 batters faced.
Ross Stripling was almost traded to the Angles over the offseason but another trade for the Dodgers halted the talks.

The Texas A&M alum has faced the Giants 14 times and is 1-3 in those games with a 3.55 ERA.
