Terms of the deal are not yet known. Passan reports a physical is scheduled for Wednesday, though Anderson himself tweeted that he was keeping his "fingers crossed for a passed physical tomorrow."

Anderson spent the 2018 season with the Athletics after agreeing to a one-year, $1.5-million minor-league contract with the club last winter. He wound up making the majors, where he threw 80 1/3 innings over 17 starts, posting a 4.48 ERA and 4.17 FIP.
