New, 26 comments

Can Cody Anderson be the final piece to the rotation puzzle?

Apparently this is the only photo of Cody Anderson that exists from Spring Training. I think that's what they want us to believe.

This post is part of a series allowing the LGT community to weigh in with their predictions for projected starters and key bench players for the 2016 season. As usual, there will be two separate contests, one for hitters and one for pitchers. Following last year's scoring model, the points system will work relative to the stats - the closer to final number in each category, the more points you can earn, despite what other participants predict. You need not submit predictions for every single player in order to win, but doing so will increase your chances to win.

For position players, you'll be asked to predict each player's plate appearances (PA), home runs (HR), stolen bases (SB), batting average (AVG), on-base percentage (OBP), and slugging percentage (SLG).

Comments for each post will remain active until the night of Sunday, April 3rd, 2015.

Cody Anderson

Cody Anderson burst onto the scene last season with three great starts. Regression hit fast and hard, and he immediately became a serviceable pitcher over the course of the season. He played well enough to earn himself a spot in the rotation this season.

Matt Lyons's Prediction

If Anderson's 97+ MPH fastball in spring is more than a March oddity, I could see him well outperforming the above projections.
