SoCal ProCase:

Body: 6-foot-4, 180-pounds. Athletic build with whippy, athletic actions. Strength gains will undoubtedly lead to a velo increase. Present athleticism paired with strength gains will aide in his durability moving forward. 

Mechanics: Right-handed pitcher. Consistent high 3/4 slot. Starts with and keeps hands near the belt when starting the arm swing. Stays balanced on the mound with weight on back leg before driving down the mound. Consistent landing spot and release with a significant front leg lift. Does a very good job of engaging the lower half in his delivery. Head stays still through release. 

Fastball: Average velocity was 88.3 MPH with a max of 89.9 MPH showing little variance in velocities as his outing went on. Spin rate average of 2286 RMP with a peak of 2359 RPM. Spin rate is slightly higher than the 2019 MLB average of 2266 RPM. Induced vertical break of 12.4” shows that his fastball has slight ride while his induced horizontal movement of 13.1” shows his fastball has significant run. These two metrics show what the eyes see, Anderson generates lots of weak contact with the fastball with most balls hit on the ground. 

Slider: Velocity averaged 75.6 MPH with a peak of 76.9 MPH. Spin rate averaged 2410 RPM with a peak of 2609 RPM. Spin rate average is on par with the 2019 MLB average of 2414 RPM. Induced vertical break of -1.9” and induced horizontal movement of -18.4” shows once again that his slide has lots of run with late sinking action.

Change: Velocity averaged 79.3 MPH with a peak of 80.6 MPH. Spin rate averaged 1472 RPM with a peak of 1580 RPM. Spin rate is below the 2019 MLB average of 1777 RPM. Induced vertical break of 9.5” (21st percentile) and induced horizontal movement average 11.4 (79th percentile). These two metrics confirm what the eyes see that Anderson’s changeup has slight sink but significant run.

Riverside County Preseason All-State - long and lanky 6-foot-4 180 pound right-hander with raw talent. Consistent loose and whippy ¾ arm action throughout his bullpen showed potential for more down the line. Fastball showed carry through the zone at 86-88 mph and topped at 90 mph. Off-speed pitches were erratic and in need of mechanical adjustment to make the next step. Slider showed some depth at 75-76 mph but failed to show consistency or repeatability. Change-up showed similar to his fastball but with more fade at 79-81 mph but lacking the ideal speed differential from the fastball. Intriguing power high-school arm that will garner Division 1 attention.
