White Sox signed C Bryan Anderson to a minor league contract.

He's been given an invitation to spring training. Anderson used to be a decent prospect a while back but batted an ugly .225/.302/.317 at Triple-A in 2012. Even with the White Sox' lack of catching depth, he seems likely to start 2013 at Triple-A.

Bryan Anderson has elected free agency.

The 25-year-old backstop hit an underwhelming .225/.302/.317 with six homers and 35 RBI at Triple-A Memphis before appearing in 10 games with the Cardinals as a September call-up. He has decided to explore the free agent market rather than accepting an assignment to Triple-A.

Anderson was called up last weekend after Yadier Molina was on the bereavement list, but he didn't make an appearance during his brief stint with the big club. The 25-year-old will return to a .210/.295/.272 batting line at the Triple-A level.

Cardinals recalled C Bryan Anderson from Triple-A Memphis.

He'll split playing time with Tony Cruz while Yadier Molina is on the bereavement list. Anderson, 25, is hitting .210/.295/.272 with two homers and a .568 OPS in 64 games at the Triple-A level this year. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Cardinals optioned C Bryan Anderson to Triple-A Memphis.

With Anderson being sent down, that means Tony Cruz has won the backup starting catcher job. The Cardinals also reassigned right-hander Victor Marte and outfielder-infielder Eugenio Velez to minor league camp.
Fri, Mar 30, 2012 04:18:00 PM

Bryan Anderson went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk Tuesday against the Astros.

Anderson is 6-for-13 with four walks this spring and is easily outshining fellow backup catcher candidates Tony Cruz and Koyie Hill with the bat. But offense isn't going to be the determining factor here. Anderson has the worst defensive reputation of the trio, and he'll have to overcome that to stick with Mike Matheny's team.
Tue, Mar 20, 2012 04:09:00 PM

Cardinals optioned C Bryan Anderson and OF Adron Chambers to Triple-A Memphis.

The Cards will roll with Yadier Molina and Gerald Laird as their big league catching duo this season. Anderson will only get the call in the event of an injury. Chambers opened some eyes this spring but is still about a year away from contributing at the major league level.
