2017

The Braves selected Anderson with the third overall pick in the 2016 draft because they knew he would sign for $2.5 million less than the slot value, allowing them to go over slot with their next five picks. That's not to say Anderson isn't an impressive young hurler. Only six players in the class received more than the $4 million he signed for and he was widely considered a top-15 talent heading into the draft. The 6-foot-3, 170-pound righty already boasts a low-90s fastball and his age and body type suggest he could add velocity in the coming years. He utilizes quality secondaries in his slider and changeup while also showing advanced command/control for his age. Anderson shut out the Gulf Coast League over 18 innings before heading to the more advanced Appalachian League, where he continued to look the part of a top-10 pick. He should spend most of 2017 with Low-A Rome and has all the tools to develop into a mid-rotation arm.
