Anderson went 1-for-3 and stole a base in Sunday's 1-0 loss to the Tigers.
Anderson has successfully pilfered all five bases he's attempted to steal through the first 10 games. By comparison, he didn't register his fifth steal in 2017 until June 8, his 51st game. In addition to his increased larceny, Anderson has been a bit more patient at the plate to start the season. He's walked four times in 33 plate appearances (12.1 percent), compared to 13 free passes in all of 2017.
Anderson went 1-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base, and a run scored in Thursday's 9-7 loss to the Tigers.
Anderson stole his fourth bag (four attempts) of the season after he opened the second inning with a single, then moved to third on a groundout before scoring on Adam Engel's sacrifice fly. It was the second such instance over the first week that Anderson's legs led directly to a run. He vowed to run more in 2018 and he's followed through. What would enhance his base-stealing and run-scoring opportunities is if the hitter with a career OBP of .291 can develop the patience to take more walks. Thursday's two-walk game was just the second of his career.
Anderson went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, three runs scored and two stolen bases in Tuesday's 14-5 loss to the Blue Jays.
Anderson has been a completely different player this season after a near season-long struggle in 2017. He lost a close friend prior to the start of last season, which is something that hung with him. But the shortstop has put that tragedy behind him, and it's showing up in the box scores. Anderson's hitting .375 (6-for-16) with three home runs, four RBI, six runs and three stolen bases.
Anderson went 1-for-4 and had a stolen base in Saturday's 4-3 comeback win over the Royals.
Anderson promised he'd be swiping more bags in 2018, so we shouldn't be too surprised by Saturday's theft. His 15 steals last year was respectable, but he had just six through the end of August. In 2018, we should see Anderson run all season long. The 24-year-old shortstop, who hit 17 home runs in 2017 and bopped two on Opening Day, should develop more power as he matures. Along with an increased dedication to steals, we could be looking at a 20-20 player in 2018.
Anderson went 2-for-4 with two home runs in Thursday's win over the Royals, adding three runs and three RBI.
It took just one game for Anderson to surpass his home run total from spring training as he turned in the first multi-home run game of his career. He joined teammate Matt Davidson in the power surge Thursday with Davidson chipping in three long balls of his own. Beyond the impressive results Thursday, it's particularly encouraging that Anderson was able to belt those home runs after dealing with some shoulder issues early in the week. Anderson answered any questions about his health on Opening Day and figures to remain in the lineup Saturday when the White Sox face Ian Kennedy and the Royals.
