2011 MLB Mock Draft: Will Nationals Land Tyler Anderson With 23rd Pick?
2011 MLB Mock Draft Gives Washington Nationals Oregon LHP Tyler Anderson With 23rd Pick
This is the Nationals second first-round selection. This is the pick they received from the White Sox for Adam Dunn. They already made a splash with the 6th pick by drafting two-sport star Bubba Starling. This pick will be used for a fast track player.
Oregon left handed pitcher Tyler Anderson doesn’t have stuff that will blow you away, but the command and control of his pitches and his feel for pitching should push him through the system very fast.
His fastball is average and he doesn’t have a knockout breaking pitch. His delivery is clean and that allows him to throw his pitches for strikes.
He is not an impact player, but he can be a good mid-rotation starter for a contending team if he is able to develop a good breaking ball.
Anderson will be an easy sign, which will probably give the Nationals more money to put in Starling’s pocket to entice him to give up football.
