Draft Profile: Ian Anderson

Ian Anderson is a right handed starting pitching prospect that plays for Shenendehow High School in Clifton Park NY.  Currently he is pitching to a .66 ERA with 91 strikeouts in 53.1 innings.  Anderson is a very projectable right handed pitcher.  He stands 6’3” tall and only weighs 170 pounds.  Watching video he doesn’t even look that heavy at all.

Stuff: Anderson has a fresh arm because he plays up in the northeast.  His fastball has been hitting the mid 90s consistently so far this spring.  He compliments that with a upper 70’s curveball that is a true 11 to 5 bender.  Like most high school players he has a changeup but doesn’t use it.  From video thou it does appear that he has good arm speed with it.  Repetition will be the key in everything for Anderson.

Commitment: Vanderbilt Commodores

My take: This would be a very good pick.  There is a decent floor for Anderson with some good ceiling if he can maintain his velocity and add some weight in pro-ball.   Anderson is a guy that will take full slot money to get out of his commitment thou.  Vanderbilt is a great school and a case could be made that he could go higher after three years there.  If he is available I think the Yankees take him especially considering Anderson will only turn 18 in May which  means he is young for this draft class.
