Anderson is the Braves’ No. 2 prospect, and their top pitching prospect, according to Baseball America. His 14 strikeouts set a new career-high, while his 113 total strikeouts lead the Southern League.
Anderson, who will play in next month’s Futures Game in connection with the All-Star game in Cleveland, lowered his ERA to 2.94. The 21-year-old is knocking on the door of a promotion, and once he’s at Triple-A Gwinnett, a call-up feels conceivable at any time, especially with how aggressive the Braves have been in relying on their youth.
