RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The White Sox bucked a trend of selecting athletic outfielders with their top draft pick by selecting Anderson, an athletic shortstop, as their first pick in the 2013 amateur draft. His speed was his top skill coming into professional baseball, and he subsequently stole 24 bases in 28 attempts for Low-A Kannapolis. The strikeouts will need to come down as he moves up the system (26 percent strikeout rate in his first 300 plate appearances), but the tools are there to keep him in the middle infield. He is easily a top-five prospect in a thin organization, and his showing in 2014 will likely dictate his major league ETA.
