2017 Medium 50 No
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 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
Power 50 Average raw power; good strength, hit balls have good loft and backspin, should play to full utility
Baserunning/Speed 50 Average runner down the line; 4.28 home-to-first, runs better than size would indicate, has a second gear on the bases
Glove 45 Makes routine plays, inconsistent footwork, tends to body balls up instead of getting his hands and feet involved, poor lateral range
Arm 60 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.
