Daily Prospect Report 10/12

Brian Anderson, CF, Chicago White Sox
Drafted 15th Overall, 2003 Draft
Bats R/Throws R
22 YO, 6'2", 205 lbs

Killed the Carolina League, then in the Southern League...not so much. Here's the details. With Kannapolis, he hit .319/.394/.531 with 22 doubles, 4 triples, 8 home runs, 29 walks, and 44 K's in 254 AB. He even had a 10 stolen bases with a 91% success rate. Then in Birmingham, he hit .270/.346/.416 with only 9 doubles, 3 triples, and 4 home runs. His walk rate remained steady though, as he drew 22 walks in his 185 at bats.

He's described as a 5 tool player, though I hate that description. He's a good defender in center. He has speed, and his bat has the potential provide power, patience, and batting average. Now he just needs to carry through and make adjustments at every level. He'll probably start 2005 back in Alabama.

ETA: Early/Mid 2006
