One MLB Team Finally Showing Interest In Free Agent Tim Anderson

The Miami Marlins' interest in Tim Anderson, the former Chicago White Sox shortstop, signifies a strategic move as they look to bolster their infield and enhance their competitiveness in the league.

Anderson, previously with the White Sox, has emerged as a potential target for the Marlins, sparking discussions around his capability to fortify Miami's roster.

The current shortstop position, held by Jon Berti, suggests the Marlins are exploring options to strengthen this area, potentially positioning Anderson or another high-caliber free agent to assume a starting role​.

Anderson had a down year last season, slashing just .245/.286/.296, with one home run, 25 RBIs, 13 stolen bases, and 52 runs scored across 123 games played.

While the Marlins have shown a propensity for developing pitching talent, as seen in their acquisition and successful utilization of players like Jorge López despite his struggles, their interest in Anderson indicates a broader strategy to also focus on improving their batting lineup and defensive capabilities​.

This approach underscores the Marlins' ambition to not only excel in pitching but to create a more balanced and formidable team by incorporating skilled position players like Anderson.

Over his eight-year career, spent entirely with the White Sox, holds a .282/.312/.422 triple-slash line, with 98 home runs, 338 RBIs, 117 stolen bases, and 528 runs scored across 895 games played. Photo Credit: Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports
