    As an underclassman, Anderson established himself as one of the more impressive hitters in the 2023 prep class thanks to an advanced approach as well as contact and power from both sides of the plate. He’s also on the younger end for the class and doesn’t turn 18 until late June, 2023. Listed at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, Anderson is a polished hitter who understands the strike zone and recognizes pitches well. It’s rare for him to chase outside of the zone, evidenced by a 13% chase rate in a 307-pitch sample in 2022, and when he does swing, he has a smooth stroke from both sides with good rhythm and balance. He shows more in-game power from the left side, but scouts think he has more raw power as a righthanded hitter. He’s got a chance for above-average on-base skills with above-average power potential as he fills out a frame that should get taller and stronger. A shortstop now, Anderson is a fringy runner who projects to be below-average in the future, and because of that and his lack of quick-twitch actions, he might profile better at third base. He has solid arm strength and has been into the low 90s as a pitcher, with reliable hands and actions as well that could suit the hot corner. Anderson’s offensive package as a switch-hitter and youth make him a potential top-two round selection, though he is committed to Georgia Tech.
