27-Year-Old ShortstopSS
Chicago White Sox
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Anderson was a surprising batting champion in 2019, as his average jumped by nearly 100 points to .335, but he backed it up last year, hitting .322/.357/.529 over 49 games. His BABIP remained at a level that doesn't look particularly sustainable, falling from .399 to .383, though Statcast still gave him a quite high .293 xBA, a near match for his .296 mark from the previous season. If his actual batting average regresses to around that point next season, he'll still be quite a useful player, especially as he chips in with a respectable amount of power and speed. He homered once every 22.1 plate appearances last season, a big improvement on his mark of one every 33.8 plate appearances from his first four seasons, suggesting he could easily reach 25 homers this year while likely adding around 15 steals. He'll remain overshadowed by a deep group of top-tier shortstops, but he's not all that far behind. Read Past Outlooks
