RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The White Sox expedited the process of transitioning to Anderson as the clubís everyday shortstop when they declined to pick up Alexei Ramirezís option this offseason. While Anderson is probably not quite ready for the big leagues, he may be the best internal option despite never playing above Double-A. The 17th overall pick in 2013, he slashed .312/.350/.429 with five home runs and 49 steals (on 62 attempts) in 125 games with Double-A Birmingham. An athletic toolshed, Andersonís only flaw on offense has been his inability to take walks, although he made minor strides in that department in 2015, going from a 2.5% walk rate in 2014 to a 4.4% walk rate last year. For a player with his profile, he does a good enough job making contact, as he has kept his K-rates below 23 percent at High-A and Double-A. There is the potential for more power as he continues to mature, meaning he could offer Jose Reyes-esque production in his prime years.

2015

Anderson is one of the more interesting position players in a budding White Sox minor league system. He was playing at Double-A Birmingham one year after the White Sox drafted him in the first round of the 2013 draft, but a fractured wrist ate six weeks of his season. Anderson showed no ill effects from the fracture, hitting .364 at Birmingham after his return, but the 21-year-old still needs to learn how to take a walk. A plus athlete who could be an efficient baserunner in the majors, Anderson figures to spend much, if not all, of the 2015 season in the minors, with a major league arrival likely in 2016.

2014

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.†
