Player Outlook
It's difficult to overstate just how hard Tim Anderson crashed and burned in 2023. The 30-year-old came into the year having slashed .318/.347/.474 over his previous four seasons. He won one batting title during that stretch and, among regulars, no one sported a higher batting average than Anderson. Last season, the shortstop fell off to an anemic .245/.286/.296 line, with his .582 OPS ranking 133rd out of 133 qualifiers. The Statcast data matched the production, with Anderson's xwOBA ranking in the bottom eighth percentile. Anderson's sprint speed also cratered to the 45th percentile, which could indicate his early-season knee issue continued to nag at him after his stint on the injured list. After the White Sox decided against picking up his $14 million option for 2024, Anderson eventually landed with the Marlins on a one-year, $5 million deal. He is expected to serve as Miami's everyday shortstop.

  • Marlins' Tim Anderson: Back in action Monday

    Anderson (illness) will start at shortstop and bat fourth in Monday's game versus the Giants. Anderson missed the previous two contests with an illness, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go Monday. It's the first time this season that he's been up in the cleanup spot for Miami, as Anderson has mostly hit sixth or seventh.

  • Marlins' Tim Anderson: Remains out Saturday

    Anderson (illness) isn't in the Marlins' lineup for Saturday's game against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Anderson missed Friday's game as a result of an illness, and he is seemingly still under the weather ahead of Saturday's contest. Vidal Brujan will once again start at shortstop and bat ninth while Anderson recovers.

  • Marlins' Tim Anderson: Sitting with illness

    Anderson is out of the lineup for Friday's game against Atlanta since he's feeling under the weather, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports.

  • Marlins' Tim Anderson: Nabs second steal

    Anderson went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Yankees. The hits are starting to come for the 30-year-old shortstop. Anderson has four multi-hit performances in the last seven games, and he's batting .346 (9-for-26) over that stretch. It's a very encouraging sign after his numbers cratered in 2023, but as yet, the contact hasn't resulted in much actual production. On the season, only one of Anderson's 13 hits (a double) has gone for extra bases, and he has just one RBI, three runs and two steals in 12 contests.

  • Marlins' Tim Anderson: Swipes first bag

    Anderson went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's 8-5 loss to St. Louis. Anderson led off the sixth inning with a single before stealing his first bag of the year. He'd advance to third on a groundout before scoring on a Matthew Liberatore wild pitch. Anderson has gotten off to a decent start in Miami, going 8-for-30 with a pair of runs scored and an RBI. The veteran shortstop is looking to bounce back from a rough 2023 campaign with the White Sox in which he slashed .245/.286/.296 with just one home run and 13 steals over 123 games.

  • Marlins' Tim Anderson: Launches first spring homer

    Anderson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets. Getting the start at shortstop and batting fifth, Anderson drove the first pitch he saw in the second inning from Tylor Megill the other way for his first long ball of the spring. The former White Sox shortstop saw his tenure in Chicago end with a whimper last season due in part to knee trouble, but the Marlins are hoping Anderson can re-discover the form that saw him win an American League batting title in 2019, when he slashed .335/.357/.508. Through seven Grapefruit League contests with Miami, the 30-year-old has gone 4-for-19 with a 0:6 BB:K.

  • Marlins' Tim Anderson: Hitless in spring debut

    Anderson went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankeees. Getting the start at shortstop and batting second behind Luis Arraez and ahead of Jazz Chisholm, Anderson didn't make an impact with his bat but looked healthy on defense, going deep in the hole to field a grounder in the second inning before firing the ball across the diamond to get the out at first base. The 30-year-old is coming off the worst season of his MLB career, but a knee injury that bothered him most of the year might have been the primary culprit for his decline. If Anderson is fully healthy in 2024, he could prove to be a draft-day steal for fantasy GMs, and a bargain for Miami on his one-year, $5 million contract.

  • Marlins' Tim Anderson: Could play Thursday or Friday

    Anderson could make his Grapefruit League debut either Thursday or Friday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Anderson officially signed with the Marlins less than a week ago and has been working out with the club as he gets back up to speed. The shortstop has said the left knee injury that plagued him last season is behind him, and he will have plenty of time to get ready for Opening Day.

  • Marlins' Tim Anderson: Says knee is 100 percent

    Anderson indicated Saturday that the MCL sprain in his left knee that he played through for most of 2023 is no longer an issue, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. "[The injury] took a toll," Anderson said prior to Saturday's Grapefruit League game. "You're talking about the front side of an MCL sprain. I had nothing to hit up against. It led to a lot of ground balls. No excuses. I kept working. I feel good today. I feel healthy, and I'm ready to go, and I'm excited." The 30-year-old signed a one-year deal with the Marlins this week to be the team's starting shortstop, and while injuries are part of the package with Anderson -- he hasn't played more than 123 games in a season since 2018 -- if he is healthy again, he could rediscover the form that saw him slash .318/.347/.473 for the White Sox between 2019 and 2022. His running should provide the first clue whether Anderson is all the way back. After recording a sprint speed of greater than 28.0 feet per second every year of his career through 2022, ranking in the 78th percentile or greater each season, his speed plummeted to 27.2 ft/s, and a 46th percentile ranking, in 2023.

  • Marlins' Tim Anderson: Lands with Miami on one-year deal

    Anderson agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract with the Marlins on Thursday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports. The fit is sensible, as the Marlins desperately needed a shortstop and Anderson was in need of a starting opportunity, which he likely hopes will allow him to show his dreadful 2023 season was an aberration. Prior to delivering a disastrous .245/.286/.296 slash line last year, Anderson had slashed .318/.347/.474 over his prior four campaigns. The 30-year-old will settle in as Miami's everyday shortstop, pushing Jon Berti back to a utility role.

  • Tim Anderson: Offered starting job in Miami

    The Marlins have offered Anderson a contract to be their primary shortstop this season, a source tells Jon Morosi of MLB Network. One of the more notable unsigned free agents, Anderson has faced a cool market this winter, coming off a dismal 2023 campaign with the White Sox in which he turned in a lowly .582 OPS over 123 games. The 30-year-old shortstop is a two-time All-Star and had compiled a .288/.316/.442 slash line over his preceding seven years in the big leagues, but he may have to settle for a one-year, prove-it deal in free agency as he looks to boost his value back up on the heels of the rough season. Miami would seemingly represent a favorable rebound spot for Anderson, who wouldn't face much competition for the everyday gig at shortstop, with Jon Berti -- a utility player for most of his career -- representing the top challenger at the moment. However, after serving as the White Sox's leadoff hitter for much of his tenure in Chicago, Anderson might have to settle for a spot lower in the order if he joins the Marlins, who will be bringing back reigning NL batting champion Luis Arraez as their presumptive table setter in 2024.

  • Tim Anderson: White Sox decline option

    The White Sox declined Anderson's $14 million option for 2024 on Saturday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports. After putting up just a .582 OPS across 524 plate appearances, Anderson will receive a $1 million buyout and enter free agency for the first time in his career. Although his production at the plate fell sharply in 2023, Anderson should still draw a good amount of attention this offseason from teams hoping the 30-year-old shortstop can return to form.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: On bench Sunday

    Anderson is not in Sunday's lineup against the Padres. Elvis Andrus gets the nod at shortstop with Zach Remillard getting a start at the keystone. The White Sox have a $12.5 million club option on Anderson for next season, but considering he was below replacement level (-0.6 fWAR) in 123 games this year, he will likely hit the open market.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: On bench Wednesday

    Anderson is not in the lineup Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks. Anderson is in the midst of a slump, having gone 1-for-12 in his last three games. The shortstop did not play Sunday after going 0-for-8 over the prior two games. Elvis Andrus will shift to shortstop while Zach Remillard receives a start at second base.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Anderson is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Boston. Anderson is 0-for-8 with four strikeouts over the past two games and will head to the bench Sunday after making five consecutive starts. Elvis Andrus will shift to shortstop while Zach Remillard receives a start at second base.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Out of lineup

    Anderson is not in the White Sox's lineup Sunday versus the Twins. Anderson was omitted from the lineup for the second time in the week. However, when he was on the bench Sept 12, it was the second game of a doubleheader. Elvis Andrus will start at short and bat leadoff in the 30-year-old's place.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Idle for nightcap

    Anderson isn't in the White Sox's lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Royals, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.comreports. After a 2-for-3 performance in Game 1, Anderson will get a breather to close out Tuesday's twin bill. Zach Remillard will replace Anderson at shortstop and bat ninth.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Scratched with stiff neck

    Anderson was scratched from the lineup Wednesday versus the Royals due to neck stiffness, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Elvis Andrus will replace him at both shortstop and leadoff as the White Sox wrap up their three-game series against Kansas City. Anderson also battled some neck discomfort in mid-August but it cost him only two games. Perhaps he can utilize Thursday's scheduled team off day to avoid another multi-game absence.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Hitting for extra bases

    Anderson went 1-for-6 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored Wednesday against the Orioles. Anderson has started eight games since returning from suspension, and he has struck out a 39.5 percent clip in that span. Though he hasn't homered, he has balanced his lack of contact with five extra-base hits and has also scored five runs. It remains a disappointing campaign for Anderson, though as the White Sox's leadoff hitter, he could be a source of stolen bases and runs scored across the final month of the season.
