It doesn’t always take a breakout summer in terms of staggering stat lines to get a player his proper recognition. The world of top prospects isn’t populated only by players like Max Pentecost and Sean Manaea before him who put themselves in the forefront of the draft picture by shear force of will and dominant results.

Sometimes there are players like Arkansas’ Brian Anderson, who from the outside looking in would appear to have had a setback of a summer in the Cape Cod League in 2013. And, while of course, a trying summer season does raise questions, more importantly it was a summer that put Anderson squarely on the national radar and allowed scouts to dream on what he was capable of being.
