White Sox shortstop prospect Tim Anderson will miss the next 4-6 weeks with fractured right wrist.
It's a tough break for the team's top prospect. Anderson is having a fine year for High-A Winston-Salem, batting .297/.323/.472 with six homers, 31 RBI and 10 stolen bases over 300 plate appearances. The injury means he'll likely only make it back for the final few weeks of the minor league season. Jul 1 - 8:31 PM

White Sox prospect SS Tim Anderson had another big game on Sunday, going 2-for-3 with a double and home run for High-A Winston-Salem.

That's now four straight games with two hits for the 20-year-old shortstop, and he's now batting .306/.333/.491 with 14 doubles, seven triples, four homers and 10 steals through 52 games. Anderson has been one of the minor league's hottest hitters lately, as the toolsy shortstop is batting a robust .444/.455/.762 with 12 extra-base hits in his last 14 contests. Despite Anderson's success at the plate so far in the Carolina League, it's doubtful that he will move up to Double-A without first improving upon his ugly 49-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio (21.5 K%, 2.6 BB%) and raw defense at shortstop (26 errors in 51 games).

White Sox shortstop prospect Tim Anderson went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, and a walk on Monday for High-A Winston-Salem, improving his season line to .288/.317/.455.

Anderson is a toolsy shortstop prospect with the potential to hit 15-20 home runs. He has nine doubles, seven triples, and three home runs on the season, but has struck out 47 times in 202 games (23%) and only has five walks on the season. He will need to improve his approach, but he has the talent to be a very good shortstop.

White Sox prospect SS Tim Anderson had a big game on Sunday, going 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs and three RBI for High-A Winston-Salem.

The home run was Anderson's first of the season, and he's now batting .281/.309/.516 with 10 extra-base hits through 16 games. However, the 2013 first-round draft pick has also posted an ugly 21/1 strikeout-to-walk ratio during that span, though that was somewhat expected given his aggressive assignment to High-A. He'll need considerable time to develop in the minor leagues, but the early return on Anderson this season has been promising.

White Sox agreed to terms with first-round pick SS Tim Anderson.

Jim Callis of Baseball America reports that Anderson will receive a $2.164 million bonus, which is the exact slot recommendation assigned to the 17th overall pick. The 19-year-old is known for his speed and may end up in center field in the long-term.

Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports that the White Sox will soon sign first-round pick shortstop Tim Anderson.

Anderson, a 19-year-old shortstop out of East Central Community College, is expected to take a physical on Wednesday to finalize his contract. The assigned slot value for the 17th overall pick is $2.164 million.

White Sox grabbed junior college shortstop Tim Anderson with the 17th pick in the draft.

Anderson has great speed and could stay at shortstop for the long haul, but he's probably never going to have a lot of power and he may be more of a bottom-of-the-order guy than someone who can hit leadoff. Also, some feel he may project better in center field than at short.
