Anderson is a closer all the way. He had trouble with command identifying a breaking ball that would work before this season, but he is mastering a knuckle-curve and his location is much better. His fastball also has more life and should chew up wood bats at the next level. Still, there are concerns about Anderson's mechanics. He has a funky arm action and does everything with maximum effort, a recipe for arm trouble.
