WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Anderson has put up some strong numbers at the plate while playing for Bryant University.  He shows a good tendency to get on base, displays the ability to steal bases, and in 2014, he added some power to his game.  Bryant’s speed was on display with 31 stolen bases in 34 attempts this year, and 56 in 64 attempts during his three-year career.  He has a career .384 on-base percentage.  Anderson has some solid tools, and could be a nice sleeper if the power he displayed this year is legit.  Despite being a junior, Anderson signed quickly.

2014
A-:  244/299/310, 242 AB, 8 2B, 4 3B, 14 BB, 33 K, 14-18 SB

Anderson opened the season as the center fielder and leadoff hitter for Jamestown.  He got off to a fast start, batting .338 in June, but stopped hitting after that.  His OPS fell to .584 in July and .435 in August.  After Elvis Escobar was reassigned to Jamestown, Anderson played more in left and moved down in the order.

Anderson will probably be at West Virginia in 2015, but may have to compete for playing time unless he gets his bat restarted.
