While his approach didn't get any better in his sophomore season, Anderson chipped in across the board for fantasy owners; he was one of 28 players to go 15-15. His 0.08 K/BB was the worst among qualified hitters, and his strikeout and walk rates only got worse over the final two months, but Anderson used his speed to beat out infield hits (10.4 infield hit percentage) and he was good enough against lefties (.321/.333/.478) to post a stomachable overall batting average. Anderson's below-average 28 percent flyball rate and 28.3 percent hard-hit rate don't portend a step forward in terms of power, but he should at least get to double digits again while playing every day for the White Sox. Further, Anderson could run more from start to finish after going 10-for-11 on the basepaths in the second half.

  2. Tim Anderson 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Anderson took over the starting shortstop job last year and looks to be the long-term solution at the position. Chicago promoted Anderson after just 55 games in Triple-A when he was hitting .304 in 256 plate appearances. Anderson's track record throughout the minors has been one of few walks and a below-average strikeout rate, and that continued at the big league level as he walked once for every nine times he struck out. However, he also hit for surprising power, matching his home run output (nine) from his previous 180 minor league contests. He was able to steal 10 bases despite a low on-base percentage. The speed will help his batting average and he has consistently made quality contact throughout the minors. His BABIP has yet to be below .369 in any stop of the minors where he spent longer than two weeks.
  3. Tim Anderson 2016 Preseason Outlook
    The White Sox expedited the process of transitioning to Anderson as the club’s everyday shortstop when they declined to pick up Alexei Ramirez’s 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, Anderson’s 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.
  4. Tim Anderson 2015 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  5. Tim Anderson 2014 Preseason Outlook
    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.
