What Happened To Brian Anderson? Why Is He Not Announcing?
Brian Anderson was injured in 2007, and while recovering, he filled in as an Indians broadcaster on Sports Time Ohio and hosted a weekly highlights show.
Currently, the announcer appears to be in good health, and no further ailment seems to keep him away for long. He was also a former Major League Baseball pitcher and may still play baseball in his spare time to stay healthy.
The athlete's 2005 season was cut short due to an elbow ligament tear that necessitated Tommy John's surgery. In 2006, the athlete made a comeback with the Texas Rangers.
During his rehabilitation, Brian re-injured it, necessitating a second Tommy John surgery. Brian was a fill-in broadcaster for the Cleveland Indians during his recovery in 2007.
He was signed to a minor league contract by the Tampa Bay Rays on February 1, 2008, with an invitation to spring training. On the other hand, Brian left the mound in the middle of a game during spring training and underwent an MRI.
Anderson had a torn flexor mass muscle in his left elbow and a torn ulnar collateral ligament (for the third time), according to the MRI.
