Brian Anderson to try his hand at pitching

Anderson inked a minor league contract with the Royals worth $700,000 this winter and was hoping to earn a spot on the 25-man roster this spring as a backup outfielder.  He failed to accomplish that goal and now wants to take a different route altogether. 

Anderson, 28, batted .243/.328/.347 last season with four home runs and 18 RBI in 202 at-bats between the White Sox and Red Sox while flashing a decent glove in the outfield.  He served as a reliever in college.

    Gotta love that “hitters becoming pitchers” tag.

    Don’t get me wrong I love the idea, but 41 matches…are you kidding me? It should be 7-10 max. This is what I would like to see though:

    I don’t really care about any of this. Looking at that picture though and knowing he plays for the Royals, I’m just visualizing him bunting at that ball and fouling it off his face.
