Tigers in EST: Brett Anderson

Brett Anderson had intended to play baseball for Franklin Pierce College after graduating from high school, but the Bristol, Conn. native’s plans changed when he was selected by the Tigers in the 12th round of the 2008 draft.  Eager to begin his professional career, Anderson chose to forgo college and sign a pro contract with the Tigers.

After signing, Anderson was assigned to the GCL Tigers.  He struggled in his debut season, appearing in 39 games and hitting .178.  He struck out in 27% of his at bats, while drawing only 3 walks.

Anderson was re-assigned to the GCL Tigers in 2009, but his results were not much better.  He cut down on his strikeouts and showed a little more power, but the results were still not good, as he only managed a .216/.261/.255 slash line.

Anderson’s numbers indicate he is still a very raw prospect and at just 19-years-old, he has time to turn his career around.  The scouting report on Anderson’s TigsTown.com profile indicates he should add power as he fills out his lean 6-foot-3 185 pound frame.

Anderson is inexperienced as a third baseman, having played shortstop in high school, but TigsTown says he has a chance to be good defender at third base thanks to his strong arm and solid hands.
