Righthander Dixon Anderson was a sixth-round pick by the Orioles last year as a draft-eligible sophomore but returned to school and did little this year to improve his stock. He touched 96 mph last year year and had been more in the 90-91 mph range this spring, topping out at 93. He has learned to be more of a pitcher this year, instead of just a thrower, because he couldn't rely on simply blowing it by guys. He uses a two- and four-seam fastball, and his two-seamer is his biggest weapon because, when it's on, it really moves. It's not consistent, but at its best the pitch has above-average life and dives to his arm side. Anderson makes the mistake of throwing harder when he gets in trouble, but is better when he lets off the gas and trusts his movement. His secondary pitches are a curveball that is occasionally a plus pitch and a splitter. He worked in a cutter this year that he can throw for strikes and helped him against righthanders. Anderson has a workhorse frame at 6-foot-6 and 224 pounds. He worked this year to get more rhythm and looseness to his delivery, but it's still segmented and mechanical.
