2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Dean Anna in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a one-year, minor-league contract with the Twins in December of 2018. Released by the Twins in February of 2019.
Calls end to career

February 18, 2019
Anna didn't report to the Twins' spring training complex Monday and informed the organization that he intends to retire, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
After signing a minor-league contract with the Twins in December, Anna had been scheduled to join the club as a non-roster invitee at spring training. While Anna was never likely to seriously contend for an Opening Day gig with the Twins, it was expected that he would play a key role in the infield for Triple-A Rochester this season. The prospect of another year on the farm apparently wasn't too appealing to the 32-year-old, who elected to call an end to a career that included brief stints in the majors with the Yankees and Cardinals in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
The 29-year-old Anna logged all of one at-bat for the Cardinals in 2015, serving mainly as their Triple-A affiliate's starting second baseman. Anna will continue to provide the club with organizational depth, assuming he stay with the Cardinals. The light-hitting middle-infielder boasts a career .277/.381/.406 line in the minors along with 43 stolen bases in 2,488 career at-bats. He signed a minor-league deal with the Cardinals last fall after being let go by the Yankees. It's highly unlikely he'll see any meaningful at-bats with the Cardinals in 2016 with it being doubtful he even gets a callup.
