Tim Anderson went 2-for-4 and drove in three runs in a 5-2 win over the Twins on Wednesday.

It was his two-run single in the sixth inning that put the White Sox ahead to stay. His knock off reliever Ryan Pressly scored Jose Abreu and Kevan Smith with the go-ahead runs. The 24-year-old shortstop struggled through his first two seasons but has developed into a fantasy-worthy starter for the first time this year. His batting average has actually declined quite a bit but he's doing much better everywhere else and is on pace to easily set career highs across the board. He has a .242 batting average with 11 homers, 25 RBI, 31 runs and 13 stolen bases in 58 games. The former first round pick could develop into an upper-crust fantasy shortstop with good power and speed.

Tim Anderson went 1-for-4 and drove in two runs in an 8-3 win over the Brewers on Friday.

He lined a triple into the gap that scored Jose Abreu and Daniel Palka in the sixth inning. He then scored on an Omar Narvaez single as the White Sox took control of the game. The young shortstop has developed into a solid fantasy performer for the first time this year. He has a .249/.310/.472 slash line with 11 homers, 22 RBI and 12 stolen bases on the season.
Jun 2 - 1:23 AM

Tim Anderson accounted for two of the White Sox’s five hits Wednesday in a blowout loss to Cleveland.

Both hits were doubles. Anderson has been on a tear over his last six games, batting .409 with four homers and eight RBI during that stretch. For the year he’s hitting .249 with 11 long balls and 12 thefts, which ranks third in the American League.
May 30 - 4:54 PM

Tim Anderson yanked two longballs, drove in four runs and scored three times during Saturday's 8-4 win over the Tigers.

He also made three errors in the contest but his fantasy owners don't care one bit. He popped a solo dinger off starter Francisco Liriano in the fifth inning, then topped that by belting a three-run jack off reliever Louis Coleman in the next frame. He also walked and scored a third run in the ballgame. The leadoff batter has added considerable power this year and is stealing bases at a rapid clip as well. He has a .246 batting average with 10 homers, 18 RBI and 26 runs. He's swiped 11 bases and has been caught only once.
May 26 - 9:11 PM

Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 and belted his eighth home run of the season as the White Sox fell to the Tigers on Friday night in Motown.

Anderson delivered a run-scoring single in the first inning, then tagged Tigers' starter Mike Fiers for a solo shot in the fifth that increased the White Sox' lead to 4-2. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting .240/.304/.415 with eight homers, 14 RBI and 11 stolen bases. He's never going to hit for a high average, but his power/speed combination keeps him as a very useful mixed league commodity.
May 25 - 10:13 PM

Tim Anderson is getting the night off Tuesday.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria told reporters that Anderson's legs have "been a little tired." The 24-year-old shortstop boasts seven home runs and 11 stolen bases in 44 games this season, but he's batting just .230/.291/.398. Jose Rondon will play short versus the Orioles.
May 22 - 6:16 PM

Tim Anderson had a single, stolen base and run scored in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Anderson singled in the third inning, then stole second base and scored on a Leury Garcia two-run single. Anderson now has 11 steals on the year, tied for third-most in the American League and fifth-best in the majors. The 11 stolen bases and his seven homers are certainly nice, but the 24-year-old has struggled to a .234/.292/.405 line overall.
May 20 - 5:10 PM

Tim Anderson went 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored Friday versus the Rangers.

Anderson had just one hit in his last 16-bats coming into Friday’s action, so this was nice to see. The 24-year-old has supplied some interesting pop (seven homers) and speed (10 steals) in the early going, but don’t overlook the increased patience at the plate. He’s already drawn 13 walks this season, which equals what he did in 146 games last year and in 99 games as a rookie in 2016.
May 19 - 1:08 AM

Tim Anderson clubbed his seventh home run of the season Wednesday in the White Sox’s loss to Pittsburgh.

Anderson hammered a two-run bomb off Pirates starter Trevor Williams in the second inning. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he went hitless with two strikeouts in his other three at-bats. Anderson went deep just twice in the whole month of April but has already smacked three homers in May with all three coming in his last four games. The 24-year-old is tied for second in the American League with 10 steals this season.
May 9 - 5:39 PM

Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs, a double and three runs scored in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Twins.

A strong overall effort for Anderson, though both of his home runs came after the Twins had already built a sizable lead. He connected on solo shot No. 1 in the seventh inning and No. 2 in the ninth inning. He's now cracked six long balls for the season as a whole. In addition, Anderson is slashing .261/.307/.462, has driven in nine runs, scored 15 and stolen 10 bases. A 20/20 season should not be ruled out, as Anderson has both the pop and the wheels to make it happen if everything breaks right for him.
May 5 - 11:00 PM

Tim Anderson swatted a leadoff solo home run in Game 2 of a doubleheader in Kansas City on Saturday.

Anderson was hot dogging a bit as he rounded the bases and Royals catcher Salvador Perez had some words with him when he crossed home plate. When Perez reached in the bottom of the first inning, the two had more words and both dugouts and bullpens emptied. Order was quickly restored, however, and no ejections were made. The two even shook hands after the incident.
Apr 29 - 2:20 AM

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.
Apr 8 - 5:41 PM

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.
