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.
Aug 9 - 11:37 PM

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.
Aug 5 - 10:21 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.
Jul 9 - 2:39 AM

Tim Anderson finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Wednesday as the White Sox fell to the A's.

Anderson is 5-for-41 (.122) over his last 12 games and batting just .239/.263/.352 on the season. The young shortstop slashed .283/.306/.432 as a rookie in 2016 and scored a six-year extension from Chicago this past March.
Jul 5 - 7:15 PM

Tim Anderson is out of the White Sox's lineup Thursday against the Yankees.

Anderson is just two for his last 21 at the plate and could probably use a night off to clear his head. He'll ride the pine with Yolmer Sanchez taking his place at shortstop.
Jun 29 - 4:45 PM

Wearing corrective glasses for the first time, Tim Anderson went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

The White Sox trailed 6-1 heading to the bottom of the ninth inning, but Anderson would sock a three-run homer off Chasen Shreve to force the Yankees to bring Aroldis Chapman into the game. The young shortstop is hitting .253/.278/.377 with seven homers, 24 RBI and five steals over the course of 67 games played for the season as a whole. Hopefully the new eyewear will be a turning point for the young shortstop.
Jun 26 - 11:50 PM

Tim Anderson went 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBI versus the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Anderson has bounced back from a rough April to hit .308 with four homers this month. Unfortunately, he's still not stealing bases and he's hitting low in the order, so he hasn't amassed much fantasy value yet.
May 31 - 12:23 AM

Tim Anderson went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday evening's loss to the Tigers.

Anderson singled in a run in the ninth inning, then came around to score on a triple by Yolmer Sanchez. He has hit well of late and is sporting a .263 batting average with five homers, 22 runs scored and 12 RBI. The 23-year-old starting shortstop has so far been unable to match the .283/.306/.432 slash line he put up as a rookie last year.
May 27 - 10:17 PM

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.
May 21 - 7:15 PM

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.
May 19 - 1:27 AM

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.
May 18 - 1:54 AM

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.
