Anderson is a big strong young man at 6-5, 205 lb. and has a chance to get even stronger. He has an unusual set of pitches for a 17 year old. Anderson’s fastball ranges from 84-88 with very good tailing and sinking action and he was consistent in keeping this pitch low in the strike zone. But Anderson’s bread and butter pitch is a 72-75 mph split finger/changeup that gets good late tumble to it. While most pitchers who throw a split also throw a slider, Anderson has a 73 mph curveball that has fair to good spin. Once again the split might be a changeup that has split finger action. Aside from his solid three pitch array, Anderson showed an advanced ability to mix and spot his pitches effectively. No matter how you look at it, Anderson is a big time pitching prospect. He is athletic and big, even ran close to MLB average in the 60. Edward is an excellent student.
