Position: First Base
Inside the numbers: One of only two players to appear in all 27 games this season. Led the team with a .419 batting average and was hit by a pitch eight times. In his 100 plate appearances, he struck out just nine times. He accumulated 36 hits – 31 of them singles – which led to him scoring 15 times.
Quick Hits: An anchor at first base, his performance was golden-glove worthy. But the big guy spoke softly and carried a big stick. Though he had to play through the pain of a shoulder injury, Anderson focused on consistency at the plate – batting over .500 for much of the season. Anderson presented a significantly smaller strike zone when he crouched his 6-foot-4 frame in the batter’s box, commonly pursing his lips in concentration during an at-bat. Anderson was also known for his relentless work ethic and focus on team success.
