Anderson, the twin brother of Braves righthander Ian Anderson, moved to the starting rotation after two years in Binghamton’s bullpen. He handled the increased responsibilities wonderfully, as he was named the America East Conference pitcher of the year. He went 9-4, 2.76 with 108 strikeouts in 88 innings to lead the conference in wins and strikeouts. The 6-foot-4, 175-pound righthander was drafted in 2016 by the Jays in the 26th round. Ben doesn’t throw nearly as hard as his brother Ian, with a fastball that sits 88-91 mph, but he generates good downhill plane from an over-the-top delivery and he pairs his fastball with a 12-to-6 curveball.
