White Sox manager Tony La Russa confirmed Wednesday that Tim Anderson will be his leadoff hitter this season.
As expected. Anderson hit leadoff all last season and posted an excellent .322/.357/.529 triple slash line. His fantasy value could even increase if La Russa lets him run more.
Tim Anderson picked up another multi-hit performance on Thursday, going 3-for-5 with a double and two singles in the White Sox Wild Card loss to the A's.
The White Sox failed to advance to the ALDS but it was no fault of Anderson's as the shortstop picked up nine hits (three hits per game) over the three-game series, which is a major league record. Although they were unable to make it to the divisional round this season, the future is very bright on the south side of Chicago and Anderson will have a chance to set more postseason records in his career.
Tim Anderson went 3-for-5 with three singles and a run scored as the White Sox fell to the A's 5-3 in Game 2 of their Wild Card series.
The shortstop picked up three hits for the second game in a row but only scored once as the ChiSox left 20 runners on-base. Chicago will need another stellar effort from Anderson on Thursday if they hope to advance to the Divisional Round.
Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 with a double, two singles, and a run scored as the White Sox defeated the A's 4-1 in Tuesday's Game 1 opener.
Anderson picked up right where he left off in the regular season with his 11th multi-hit performance in the month of September. It should come as no surprise that the stud shortstop reached three times in his very first postseason game. Anderson and the ChiSox are on the brink of reaching the Divisional Round for the first time since 2008.
Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson went 1-for-4 in a 10-0 loss to the Cubs on Friday.
Anderson picked up one of just three hits in the loss. He is putting the finishing touches on a strong year, hitting .337 with 10 homers, 44 runs, 21 RBI, and five steals.
