Nick Anderson
28-Year-Old PitcherRP
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Anderson may be the rare 28-year-old with no major-league experience worth knowing. A 32nd-round pick by the Brewers back in 2012, Anderson never signed and instead went to the Frontier League until the Twins purchased his contract in 2015. After recording a 2.25 ERA in 183.2 minor-league innings, split over four seasons, Anderson was acquired by the Marlins, who immediately placed him on their 40-man roster. There may be no organization in baseball better to try to break in with than Miami. It would be a surprise to see him anywhere near the closer conversation early in the season, but after striking out 36.2% of batters while walking just 7.8% at Triple-A last season, it's conceivable that Anderson could work his way towards a high-leverage role as the season progresses.

Picks up first hold
PMiami Marlins
April 20, 2019
Anderson struck out the side but gave up a solo home run in an inning of relief Friday to record his first hold of the season.
ANALYSIS
Brian Dozier ripped a first-pitch fastball down the left-field line to make it a 3-2 game, but otherwise Anderson remained dominant. The right-hander has worked his way into the late-inning mix for Miami with a 2.79 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and an eye-popping 20:2 K:BB through 9.2 innings, but Friday's homer was the second he's given up, continuing an issue that impacted his Triple-A campaign last year (1.2 HR/9). He remains an intriguing saves stash given the unsettled nature of the Marlins' bullpen, but for now Anderson's fantasy value is restricted to formats in which high-K relievers are worth roster spots.
