DrB's 2018 Giants Top 50 Prospects: #11 Shaun Anderson

Shaun Anderson, RHP.  DOB:  10/29/1994.  6'4", 225 lbs.  Drafted 2016 Rd 3(Red Sox).

A(Red Sox):  3-0, 2.56, 38.2 IP, 8.61 K/9, 2.56 BB/9, GO/AO= 1.34.
A+(Red Sox):  3-3, 3.99, 58.2 IP, 7.36 K/9, 2.76 BB/9, GO/AO= 0.87.
A+(Giants):  3-3, 3.51, 25.2 IP, 7.71 K/9, 1.40 BB/9, GO/AO= 1.39.

Anderson is the other pitcher the Giants received from the Red Sox for Eduardo Nunez.  He's a big, strong RHP who was a college reliever only because Florida had too many great SP's.  Anderson throws a FB 92-96 MPH and also has a cutter, slider, curveball and an improving changeup he is starting to throw more often per Eric Longenhagen of Fangraphs.  I saw Shaun pitch in his last start of the season in San Bernardino.  He was completely dominant, allowing his only baserunner in the 6'th and final inning while striking out 7 and walking 0.  BTW, it was so hot that night, I had to leave the game early and nearly fainted as I was walking out to my car.  Anyway, Shaun Anderson should move up to AA this season and I expect him to be MLB ready as early as midseason.
