The move is retroactive to Saturday for Bard, who is dealing with right forearm fatigue.

Bard, 38, is 4-2 with a 4.70 ERA and one save in 47 relief appearances this season with the Rockies.

Anderson, 35, was placed on the 15-day injured list on July 28, retroactive to July 25, with right shoulder inflammation. He has an 0-4 record with a 6.63 ERA in 12 starts this season.

He is 1-1 with a 7.56 ERA in two career starts against Toronto.
