DOB 10/29/94
Coral Springs, FL
6'4 225lbs, B/T R/R.
Drafted in 3rd round out of Florida by the Boston Redsox.

Anderson has your typical pitchers built and is quite athletic. He has a clean and repeatable delivery. He works in the 90-92 range and will top out at 94. He has solid control but his fastball is straight when it's up in the zone. He also has a cutter, slider, curve ball and change. Shaun worked out of the bullpen in college but will be stretched out as a started by the Redsox. All his pitches look to be average to above average but none appear to be great. He projects to be a 4/5. It's possible they could convert him back to a MR and if they do he should advance quickly but so far he's had great results in 2017 as a starter.

Shaun's performance to date: 7 GS, 38.2ip, 37k/11bb, 2 HRA, 1.06 WHIP, 2.56 era. At 22, he's a little old for Greenville but this is his first year of full season ball.

He's made 2 starts in Salem. His first outing he would give up 6er in the first inning but settle down to finish with 6ip, 10h, 7er, 3bb/4k.

In his 2nd start, he fared quite better. 6ip, 2h, 0 er, 1bb/4k.

Made another 2 starts since update.
5ip 3 h, 3er, 3bb/4k
6.1ip, 6h, 3er, 1bb/3k.

Hasn't adjusted to Salem as you would have hoped but doesn't appear overmatched either. Still just 4 games and A to A+ is a huge jump.
