Anderson hit his fifth home run in a 1-for-4 game in Monday's loss to the Mariners. Anderson's plate discipline continues to leave something to be desired, as a strikeout Monday brings his BB:K to an ugly 2:44. Still, it's hard to argue with his power -- he now has 15 home runs in just 32 games and an excellent .464 slugging percentage, better than all but eight qualified shortstops thus far in 2016.
Anderson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in the White Sox's win over the Yankees on The home run was his fourth in 23 MLB games, or the same number he had in 256 Triple-A plate appearances before his promotion. He still has just the one walk, but he will continue to bat leadoff for the Sox until he falls into a slump.
Anderson went 3-for-4 with his first career walk in Thursday's one-run victory over the Twins. Anderson singled in each of his first two trips to the plate, giving him 10 multi-hit performances in his first 19 MLB games. The 17th overall pick in 2013 also made a sterling defensive play with one out in the second inning, throwing out Trevor Plouffe from six feet into the outfield grass with a perfect one-hop throw to first. And for good measure, Anderson drew career walk No. 1 in the fourth in his 86th plate appearance overall. The rookie has made a clear statement, with both his bat and glove, that he has no plans of returning to the minors. He's hitting .314/.322/.512 with six doubles, a triple and three home runs since joining the team on June 10.
Anderson went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run in Wednesday's 9-6 victory over the Twins. He plated Avisail Garcia and Tyler Saladino with a sixth-inning single, which was preceded by a fifth-inning two-bagger. Although he also went down on strikes in his other three at-bats, the effort still represented Anderson's third straight multi-hit outing, and extended his hitting streak to six games. The 23-year-old has certainly put together a solid start to his major league career since being called up on June 10, slashing .293/.293/.500 with six doubles, a triple, three homers, five RBI and a pair of stolen bases over his first 82 major league at-bats.
