White Sox's Tim Anderson: Plans to increase basestealing
Anderson has reintroduced a running game to his offense this month, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Anderson had gone 72 games with just two attempted steals before swiping five bags in five attempts over the last nine games. Basestealing was a big part of his game in the minors -- Anderson stole 49 bases at Double-A Birmingham in 2015 -- and he said he got away from it in the majors for a variety of reasons. "Kind of got caught up in trying to impress when I got to the big leagues -- kind of lost focus with it and being not sure or kind of scared in certain spots, because I didn't want to get thrown out," he said. "Now it's just, 'So what if I get thrown out. Just go.'" With Anderson's power beginning to develop -- the 24-year-old has 16 home runs this season -- we're looking at a potential 20-20 man for the White Sox over the next several seasons.
