In his four AB last night:

- lined out to right

- grounded out to second

- reached on an infield single to third

Has a 7-point lead over LeMahieu.

What stands out to me is his going the other way. Way up. That is a big change. He looks more like a .280 hitter than .300 going forward, but with some power and speed that's a valuable hitter. (To me his BA this year is reminiscent of Willie McGee's first batting championship, though McGee was a better contact guy than Anderson as a youngster.)

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman

Talk about adjusting launch angle.  He's at a career high in line drive rate by a considerable margin.  It's definitely helped his BABIP.  Hitting so many in the air last year obviously hurt.  It seems to me, he won't be able to match this year's level going forward, but if he can level out at .350-360, not unreadable given his speed, he should be able to hit around .300, which is great our traditional leagues.  In OBP leagues, that's another matter.  Too bad he spent so much time on the shelf.  I'm keeping him for $23 next year.

In a year when everyone else is swinging for the fences, is Tim Anderson trying to put the ball in play? It sure looks like it. He's got a 12-point lead over LeMahieu for the batting crown -- I can't imagine that was one of his goals at the beginning of the season but I bet it is now.

Tim Anderson (SS) CHI-A - Sep. 04

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=729830
Anderson went 3-for-5 with a double, home run, two RBI and two runs scored Wednesday against the Indians.
ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Anderson was productive throughout the game but saved his best for last, smacking a two-run homer off Brad Hand in the final frame. He now has 15 home runs on the campaign and extended his hitting streak to five games. For the season, Anderson is hitting 331/.352/.506 to go along with 16 steals across 106 games.

It's impossible to keep up with Mondesi despite the better power and average b/c of Mondesi's steals and inexplicable RBI total.

I thought he joined the club in April?

As it happens, he has now had the same number of AB that count as AB during spring training.

For future reference, his slash stats in the 59 AB that count: .424/.443/.678.

His slash stats in spring training: .322/.344/.475.

The spring training stats will be taken down at the end of the month. Until then, they give us something to ponder. Are they worth looking at closely as we fine-tune our bids? Do they tell us anything at all?

Although his season isn't sustainable, it's sure been fun owning him so far.  I think a few in my league scoffed at his .240 AVG even though he was 20-20 last year.  I saw his BABIP and said, that's not sustainable and thought he'd be in line for a nice bounce back in AVG.  Throw in 20-20 again, he could earn as much as $30.  I'm happy I followed through when his price slowed in the low $20s because had him priced around $24 raw.
