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.

Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, and two runs scored as the White Sox topped the Rays on Sunday.

Anderson got Chicago on the board first with an RBI single in the bottom of the third inning. He then added a solo homer in the bottom of the fifth and a run-scoring double in the bottom of the seventh. It has been a frustrating season overall for the 24-year-old shortstop, though he's hit the ball well in August and he's now up to 15 home runs.

Tim Anderson (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a single in his return to action Friday against the Rays.

Anderson was held out of Thursday’s lineup after tweaking his hamstring on Wednesday, but it’s not a major concern. The 24-year-old is riding a six-game hitting streak, but he has regressed with a .241/.260/.387 batting line and a scary 130/12 K/BB ratio over 120 games this season.

Tim Anderson is out of the White Sox lineup Thursday after tweaking his hamstring on Wednesday night.

But it doesn't sound like an overly serious injury, as manager Rick Renteria said he expects Anderson to return on Friday against the Rays. Tyler Saladino is starting at shortstop and batting seventh Thursday versus Twins right-hander Bartolo Colon.

Tim Anderson posted a solo home run for his only hit across four at-bats in Tuesday's road game against the Dodgers.

Anderson has swatted homers in back-to-back games, and he has collected five long balls with 11 RBI through 13 games in the month of August. His homer and RBI totals are already a high for any month this season and we're only halfway through August.

Tim Anderson crushed his 13th home run of the season as the White Sox fell to the Royals on Sunday afternoon.

Anderson's two-run shot off of Jason Vargas got the White Sox on the board in the fifth inning. It was the fourth home run in the last eight games for the White Sox' shortstop. He finished the day 1-for-5 and is now hitting .242/.262/.386 on the season with 13 homers, 39 RBI and six stolen bases.

Tim Anderson went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Royals.

Anderson put a bow on a four-run seventh inning via his two-run home run off Peter Moylan. That shot gave the White Sox a 6-2 lead. For the season as a whole, the young shortstop is hitting .241/.261/.379 with 12 home runs, 37 RBI and six steals in 102 games played. While his overall triple-slash is lacking, Anderson has been playing well of late. He has gone yard in two of his last three games and has picked up multiple hits in five of his last 10 games.

Tim Anderson had a two-run homer and an RBI double in Wednesday's win over the Astros.

Anderson is showing more power of late, with two homers, a triple and three doubles in eight games this month. Still, he's striking out more, too. There's been very little about his season that qualifies as encouraging.

Tim Anderson led off the game with a home run against the Red Sox on Saturday.

And that was the only run his team would score all night. Anderson added a single later in the game to finish 2-for-4. He brandishes a sickly .237/.258/.362 slash line with 10 homers and 31 RBI in 398 plate appearances.
Sat, Aug 5, 2017 10:21:00 PM

Tim Anderson finished 2-for-4 with a game-winning solo home run in the top of the ninth inning in Saturday's game at Colorado.

The solo shot came off of All-Star closer Greg Holland, just the second homer he has allowed across 33 1/3 innings this season. Anderson has homers in back-to-back games, but he has also been playing in the rarefied air in Denver so tamp down expectations. If he gets back to sea level and can replicate the results then it is time to get excited.
