Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, two runs scored and two total RBI in Sunday's win over the Mariners.
Anderson picked up an infield RBI single against Chris Heston as part of a five-run first inning by the White Sox and burned Heston once again (in considerably louder fashion) with a solo home run in the third inning. This was his fifth multi-hit game in his last six contests (and his second three-hit showing in his last four games) and the young shortstop is now slashing .264/.288/.405 for the season as a whole. Fantasy owners who have been patiently housing Anderson on their benches while waiting for him to heat up should consider installing him in the lineup as needed given his recent hot play.

Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 with a double and a game-tying eighth-inning solo home run in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Mariners.

Strong all-around game for Anderson, who also nabbed his third steal of the season in the loss. His solo home run off Dan Altavilla with two outs in the eighth inning tied the score at 4-4 as the Mariners' bullpen blew yet another lead, but Anderson and the White Sox would ultimately fall on a walk-off RBI single by Guillermo Heredia in the bottom of the ninth. While the 23-year-old Anderson owns just a .254/.281/.388 triple-slash across 32 games played, he has shown signs of late that he might be starting to get into the swing of things in earnest. Thursday's three-hit performance was his fourth consecutive multi-hit showing. In that four-game space, he has homered twice, doubled and tripled.

Tim Anderson went 2-for-4 and hit his first triple of the year Wednesday against the Angels.

Anderson homered Tuesday and has hit in six straight now, raising his average from .198 to .238. He's been a big fantasy disappointment thus far, but he should have some mixed-league value when all is said and done.

Tim Anderson will miss the White Sox' weekend series against the Padres in order to the funeral of his close friend.

Anderson's longtime friend Branden Moss, who is godfather to Moss' daughter, was shot and killed early Sunday morning near the University of Alabama campus. The shortstop will rejoin the team on Monday in Anaheim. The White Sox figure to shift Tyler Saladino over to shortstop and start Yolmer Sanchez at second base while Anderson is away.

Tim Anderson is not in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

Anderson is grieving following the passing of someone who was close to him. It doesn't sound like he'll go on the bereavement list, but the White Sox will give him a day off Sunday. Tyler Saladino is at shortstop.
May 7 - 11:49 AM

Tim Anderson went 0-for-4 on Wednesday and is 2-for-21 over his lst five games.

It looked like Anderson was coming out of his season-opening slump during the latter stages of last month -- he went 9-for-22 with a homer and two RBI in five games from April 23-28 -- but now his average is back under .200 again. The White Sox won't bench him, but they need to get him away from the top of the order and at least stop rewarding him from his hacktasic approach at the plate (he's walked three times in 110 plate appearances).
May 3 - 11:10 PM

Tim Anderson crushed his second home run of the season as the White Sox beat the Tigers on Friday.

Anderson tagged hard-throwing rookie Joe Jimenez for a two-run shot in the ninth inning, capping off the White Sox' scoring in the contest. He doubled and scored a run in the third inning, finishing the night 2-for-5. After a very slow start to the season, Anderson has now hit safely in nine of his last 10 games, raising his average from .140 to .224 in the process.
Apr 28 - 11:13 PM

Tim Anderson finished 3-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored Monday as the White Sox routed the Royals.

Anderson contributed an RBI single to Chicago's eight-run outburst in the bottom of the sixth inning. The young shortstop also had a big game Sunday afternoon against the Indians and looks to be getting hot after a brutal start to the 2017 campaign.
Apr 24 - 11:11 PM

Tim Anderson went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the White Sox beat the Indians on Sunday.

Anderson also drew a walk in the contest and struck out twice. He's off to a rough start at the plate, so this performance was a welcomed sign for fantasy owners. Even with the two-hit day, he's only slashing .194/.217/.269 on the season. He'll get every opportunity to succeed though and continues to occupy the top spot in the White Sox lineup.
Apr 23 - 5:34 PM

Tim Anderson is absent from the White Sox starting lineup Sunday versus the Twins.

It's a day of mental rest for the struggling shortstop, who owns a weak .140/.159/.209 batting line through 10 regular-season games. Leury Garcia will start at short and bat leadoff versus Minnesota.
Apr 16 - 1:20 PM

Tim Anderson finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Chicago's loss to the Indians on Tuesday.

Anderson is now batting .192 with a .384 OPS through six regular-season games. Maybe it's the pressure of his new contract extension, or maybe it's far too early to make any kind of assumptions. The young shortstop should be just fine.
Apr 11 - 7:59 PM

Tim Anderson went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Friday’s loss to the Twins.

The stolen base was his first of the young season. Anderson has stolen as many as 49 bases in a season before in the minors, but he swiped just 10 bases in 99 games as a rookie last year. His poor approach is going to limit his on-base opportunities, but he has the potential to improve his total in 2017.
Apr 7 - 11:55 PM

White Sox signed SS Tim Anderson to a six-year, $25 million extension.

Scott Merkin of MLB.com first reported that the two sides were close to a deal while FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal and Bob Nightengale of USA Today passed along contract details. The deal includes a pair of club options valued at $25.5 million, so the deal could max out at $50.5 million. The White Sox have bought out all of his arbitration seasons and his first two seasons of free agency. While this is a record guarantee for a player with fewer than one year of MLB service time, it could be quite the bargain if he progresses as hoped. The 24-year-old batted .283/.306/.432 with nine home runs and 10 stolen bases over 99 games as a rookie last season. Chicago considers him as an important building block.
Mar 21 - 1:05 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the White Sox and Tim Anderson have reached agreement on an extension which is expected to include six guaranteed years.

Scott Merkin of MLB.com first reported that the two sides were closing in on a deal, but now the final details are trickling in. According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the deal is worth $25 million, which would be the new record for a player with less than one year of service time. Rays right-hander Chris Archer ($20 million guaranteed) had the previous record. The deal includes a pair of club options which could bring the total value to $51.5 million. An official announcement should come soon.
Mar 21 - 9:02 AM

MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports that the White Sox are discussing a multi-year contract with Tim Anderson.

The potential parameters of the deal aren't known at this point. Anderson isn't arbitration-eligible until after the 2019 season, but the White Sox obviously see something special in him and want to make a long-term commitment to him. The shortstop batted .283/.306/.432 with nine home runs and 10 stolen bases over 431 plate appearances for the White Sox last season.
