Anderson more than lived up to the hype during the regular season in 2020, locking down six saves while putting up a silly 0.55 ERA, 0.49 WHIP, and a 44.8% strikeout rate. But he fell apart during the playoffs, pitching to a 5.52 ERA with a meager 14.2% strikeout rate, and allowing at least one run in each of his last seven appearances. Instead, Pete Fairbanks, who had nary a save in the regular season, saved three games in the postseason. Anderson spoke openly of his fatigue, both mental and physical, after the playoffs, and it seems that there's little reason to pay his poor performance much mind. Draft him for his strong ratios and his handful of saves, though don't expect him to operate like a traditional closer given how Tampa Bay generally operates.
