Tim Anderson went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's loss to the Astros.
Anderson came through with his second double of the season, one of just two extra-base hits the White Sox managed in what was a thorough domination by the defending champs. On the whole, the 24-year-old shortstop is hitting .238/.314/.413 with three home runs, five RBI and eight steals. He's already over halfway home to surpassing the 15 bases he swiped during the 2017 season. Apr 22 - 12:07 AM

Tim Anderson went 1-for-3 with a steal in a loss to the Tigers on Sunday.

That steal gives Anderson five already on the year, which is two more than any other player in baseball. He's also hitting .276/.364/.586 on the young season. If Anderson continues to work counts and get on enough to attempt steals, this could be a monster season for the 24-year-old shortstop. You have every right to be skeptical at this point, but it's never been a question of talent.

White Sox' shortstop Tim Anderson told Scott Merkin of that he is going to continue to be aggressive on the basepaths.

Anderson explained, "It’s just confidence. It's way up. I don’t feel like nobody can throw me out. I’m going to keep running and see what happens." The 24-year-old shortstop is hitting .304/.385/.696 with three homers, four RBI and a league-leading four stolen bases through his first six games.

Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 and hit his third homer against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

It took Anderson a month and a half to hit his first three homers last year. His plate discipline is still so bad that we wouldn't want to count on a breakthrough campaign at age 25. However, he does have 20 HR/20 SB ability and there's the potential for mixed-league value if he can move up in the White Sox lineup.
Apr 3 - 10:52 PM

Tim Anderson hit a pair of home runs, driving in three and scoring three runs, in Thursday's Opening Day drubbing of the Royals.

Anderson hit a surprising 17 jacks last season, but he's apparently out to show that output was no fluke. The wiry shortstop ripped a solo dong off Royals starter Danny Duffy in the fourth inning then hit a two-run wall-scraper off reliever Blaine Boyer an inning later. Anderson doesn't walk much but does a lot of other things that please fantasy owners, as evidenced Thursday.

Tim Anderson (shoulder) is scheduled to work out Wednesday.

Anderson dealt with a minor shoulder issue toward the end of White Sox camp, but it sounds like the 24-year-old shortstop is going to be in the starting lineup on Opening Day. He tallied 17 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 146 games last season despite an underwhelming .257/.276/.402 overall batting line.

Tim Anderson (shoulder) is being held out of Monday's exhibition game for precautionary reasons.

Anderson was also held out of Sunday's Cactus League finale due to a minor shoulder issue. With Opening Day just three days away, the White Sox aren't going to push it.
Mar 26 - 5:33 PM

Tim Anderson is being held out of Sunday's Cactus League game with a "minor" shoulder injury.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria told reporters that it's nothing serious, so this is likely just precautionary as we're getting closer to the real games. Anderson, 24, has show flashes of brilliance in his time with the White Sox, but until he shows a semblance of an approach at the plate, he's difficult to trust in standard fantasy formats.
Mar 25 - 3:16 PM

Tim Anderson clubbed a three-run homer in Friday’s Cactus League opener against the Dodgers.

Anderson owns a flawed approach — with a scary 162/13 K/BB ratio last season — but he finally showed off his speed last September with nine steals. He amassed nine homers in 99 games as a rookie and 17 in 146 games last year, so he could be an interesting fantasy option if he can pick things up on the speed front over a full season. Getting on base more often would help. He has a lowly .289 on-base percentage over his first two seasons in the bigs.

Tim Anderson belted his 17th home run of the season as the White Sox topped the Astros 3-1 on Thursday night in Houston.

Anderson's solo blast came off of Francis Martes in the eighth inning, capping off the scoring in the ballgame. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. For the season, Anderson is now hitting .263/.280/.417 with 17 homers and 54 RBI.

Tim Anderson went 1-for-4 with a double in a 12-0 loss to the Tigers on Sunday.

Anderson had just one hit, but it was a notable one, as it broke up Detroit hurler Matt Boyd's no-hitter with two outs in the ninth. He's been much better in the second half, and now has his line up to .262/.281/.414 on the 2017 campaign.

Tim Anderson stayed hot Saturday against the Tigers by going 4-for-5 with two steals and two runs scored.

Anderson had three singles and a double. He’s batting .473 (26-for-55) over his last 12 games and has swiped seven bases in that time. Anderson stole only six bases over his previous 121 games this season. His speed isn’t in question, but it's about time he started taking advantage of it.

Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 with a run, RBI and two stolen bases in a win over San Francisco on Sunday.

The steals are numbers eight and nine on the year, respectively. For most of the year, the talented shortstop has been an automatic out, but he's ending the year on the right foot. The talent is here for him to be a top-of-the-order hitter if he just shows a smidgen -- or in reality, much more -- plate discipline.

Updating a previous item, Tim Anderson has been scratched from the lineup on Wednesday due to illness.

Anderson began to feel off on Tuesday and has not recovered in the interim. Tyler Saladino will man shortstop in his place against the Indians on Wednesday. This bug does not figure to sideline Anderson for any serious amount of time.

Tim Anderson (undisclosed) was a late scratch from the lineup in advance of Wednesday's game against the Indians.

No word as of yet as to why Anderson has been scratched from the lineup, but if there is an injury concern, the White Sox will pass along word. Tyler Saladino will play shortstop and is hitting eighth in his place on Wednesday.
