2019 Fantasy Outlook
For a player with as little prospect pedigree and buzz as Anderson, he had himself a nice little rookie season. He was the second-best hitter on a poor Marlins team, finishing 13 percent better than league average with the bat after accounting for park effects (113 wRC+). His plate-discipline profile was pretty much exactly in line with his minor-league track record, with Anderson walking 9.3% of the time while striking out at a 19.3% clip. The big drawback was the lack of power. Anderson had 34 doubles but only 11 homers and a .127 ISO, and his 51.8% groundball rate and .397 road slugging percentage don't portend much improvement in that department in the years to come. His 19.7% line-drive rate also points to a batting average in the .270s being maybe his ceiling. With his steady plate skills and an everyday role, the soon-to-be 26-year-old Anderson appears primed to once again be relevant in the corner infield, if only as a textbook accumulator.
