Bruce Bochy turned 68 years old last month. He’s been in professional baseball in some capacity since 1975, including the past three years as a special assistant in San Francisco.

He has won more than 2,000 games as a manager.

He’s seen a lot of baseball.

But what right-hander Grant Anderson did Tuesday night in his MLB debut was something new even for Bochy.

    Very cool seeing the Detroit crowd and players give him a round of applause as he was coming off the field. It’s a day he’ll never forget. Congrats to him

    I read Scott Lucas’ minor league updates just about everyday to keep up with our kids in the minors and who’s doing what. I have to admit, I was not aware of who Grant Anderson was and don’t recall ever seeing him being mentioned! I’m sure he was listed in the box but apparently didn’t stand out… to me anyhow. Was he at the top of your list to get pulled up??

    Okay, just read Scott’s report today. Anderson has not had 7 K’s since his final game in college, 2018. He’s had 6 K’s twice in the minors. Don’t mean to be Mr. Glass Half Empty here, but I think what we saw a very special outing but doubt it is sustainable… at that level.

      Striking out 7 of 9 isn’t sustainable, but he can still be effective. I agree that he’s going to get his share of lumps, as all rookies do.
