Anderson's last outing against the Reds was cut short after he was struck in the back by an Alfredo Simon pitch -- an inning and a half after Anderson hit Simon. Anderson was OK, but the Brewers opted to remove him from the game.

It’s been an up-and-down season for Velasquez, whose highs have been Everest-esque (16 K SO vs. SD) but also come with outings like his last against the Cubs, who hammered him for two HRs and seven runs in 4 2/3 innings.

Hellickson turned in perhaps his best start of the year Monday against the Nationals, tossing seven innings of one-run ball. But he was pulled for a pinch-hitter after only 79 pitches, so he should be fresh for this start.
