Large, athletic body and frame, lacks remaining physical projection
Jupiter Hammerheads (High A, Marlins)
Tall, narrow stance in the back of the box, moderate stride, above-average bat speed, short hand path through the zone; works all fields, most comfortable to pull side; good eye, recognizes pitches early, tracks well, gets involved on every pitch
Average raw power; good strength, hit balls have good loft and backspin, should play to full utility
Average runner down the line; 4.28 home-to-first, runs better than size would indicate, has a second gear on the bases
Makes routine plays, inconsistent footwork, tends to body balls up instead of getting his hands and feet involved, poor lateral range
Plus arm strength; balls have zip and hold their lines, plus accuracy
Anderson is a quality hitter with good power, a plus arm, and better speed than the frame suggests. He is presently below-average at third base, and will likely continue to struggle unless his hands and technique improve. He has played second base in past, but doesn't have the necessary range for the position. He could ultimately see some work in the outfield down the road.
