Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 50 | Arm: 60 | Field: 60 | Overall: 50

Anderson was a versatile defender who flashed offensive potential at Arkansas before going to Miami in the third round of the 2014 Draft. Though he struggled in his first full season with an aggressive assignment to the Florida State League, Anderson has made progress in each subsequent year. He showed signs of breaking out in the 2016 Arizona Fall League, where he paced the circuit in home runs, and then blasted 22 homers between Double A and Triple-A in 2017 before finishing the season as Miami's everyday third baseman.

Anderson has always shown power potential, combining strength with a leveraged swing and good extension through the hitting zone. He got to that power more than ever in 2017, driving the ball with authority from line to line, with plus raw power to his pull side. Anderson also can hit for average, showing good feel for finding the barrel while employing a selective approach. After bouncing between the infield and outfield in college and then working at both second and third base during his professional debut, Anderson has manned the hot corner exclusively since the start of 2015. His hands, range and plus arm are all fits at the position.

There once was concern about whether Anderson would hit for enough power to profile as a regular at the hot corner, but he's done his part to prove his detractors wrong. After getting a taste of the Major Leagues as a September callup, he could stake claim to the Marlins' third-base job in 2018.
