Anderson has a nasty curve that dives in against left-handers and away from righties. He generated a 52.2 swing-and-miss rate on it in 2019.

Anderson’s four-seamer looks like it is rising to hitters by dropping 3.5 less inches than the average four-seamer. That’s good for third in baseball, behind only Colin Poche and Sean Doolittle.

Anderson gets some good heat behind this pitch. He’s been unlucky to this point (.700 BABIP), which has lead to a negative pitch value and a heavy ouput (141 wRC+). As long as he continues to use this pitch to set up his good slider, it’ll be a useful foundation for him.

This is a nice pitch. Anderson gets great depth and late break on his slider, leading to a 31%SwStr rate on a 40+% zone rate – pretty good! He controls this pitch well, as he hasnt walked someone on it yet. This is the offering that will make or break Anderson,
