When the Miami Marlins open the 2019 season at home against the Colorado Rockies, Nick Anderson will be one of 14 pitchers on the roster.

The 6-foot-5, 195-pound right-hander will be making his major league debut as a middle reliever in the Marlins bullpen.

The 28-year-old Brainerd High School graduate was drafted in the 32nd round by the Milwaukee Brewers after finishing his college career at Mayville State University.

He spent three years pitching in the unaffiliated Frontier League before landing in the Minnesota Twins organization.

He was traded to the Marlins in November after going 8-2 for the Twins AAA affiliate Rochester. He struck out 88 batters in 60 innings.

In seven spring training games, Anderson is 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA. In eight innings, he's allowed three earned runs on five hits and no walks. He's struck out 10.

Anderson is the first Brainerd graduate to make the majors since Todd Revenig was called up by the Oakland Athletics in 1992. Revenig saw two innings in parts of two games for the As. He allowed two hits and no runs. He struck out one.
