Lars Anderson is now with his fourth organization in the past six months, as the Blue Jays claimed the former top prospect off waivers from the White Sox.
Previously he was traded from the Red Sox to the Indians in July, got sent to the Diamondbacks in the three-team Shin-Soo Choo/Trevor Bauer deal, and then got claimed off waivers by the White Sox three weeks ago.
Anderson cracked Baseball America‘s annual top-100 prospects list three times, including No. 17 overall in 2009, but he’s hit just .260 with a .415 slugging percentage in 533 games between Double-A and Triple-A. He has good on-base skills, but at age 25 he needs to show significantly more power to have any sort of big-league future at first base.
