The Braves have at least nine pitching prospects who warrant ownership in deeper leagues, and Anderson is squarely in the middle of that pack. He has a very athletic 6-foot-3, 170-pound frame and boasts a mid-90s fastball, plus curveball and potentially above-average changeup -- a pitch he really improved in 2017. His 28.5 percent strikeout rate ranked fourth in the Sally League among starters who threw at least 80 innings, and while his 12.1 percent walk rate was the fourth-worst mark in the league, evaluators still expect him to grow into at least average control, thanks to his athleticism and a repeatable delivery. While he only threw 17.2 innings in the final two months of the season, this was the result of a strict innings limit, not an injury. That said, it will be critical for him to build up his workload in the coming seasons. The Braves have been aggressive with top pitching prospects, but Anderson isn't as polished as Mike Soroka and Kolby Allard were last season, so look for him to get a standard one-level bump to High-A.

  2. Ian Anderson 2017 Preseason Outlook
    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.
