The Brewers made the move before Wednesday night's game at Miller Park. The team didn't say how the cut occurred.
Anderson posted a 1.86 ERA in two starts, striking out nine with five walks over 9 2/3 innings. Including five relief appearances this season, Anderson is 2-0 with a 3.20 ERA.
Right-handed reliever Jacob Barnes started in place of Anderson. Burnes was recalled from San Antonio to fill Anderson's spot on the roster.
