    Reds claim outfielder Drew Anderson off waivers from the Brewers

    Not sure if this was posted but some Reds news here.

    Rotoworld

    Reds claimed outfielder Drew Anderson off waivers from the Brewers.

    This is hard to believe. Anderson, 26, hit .273/.324/.395 with 16 steals in 377 at-bats for Triple-A Nashville last season. In five seasons, he's posted an 800 OPS once, that coming in Rookie ball in 2003. He shouldn't have any sort of a career as a reserve outfielder.

    Reds claim OF Drew Anderson

    It looks like the Reds claimed him from the Brewers and he'll take the last spot on the 40 man roster.

    Re: Reds claim OF Drew Anderson

    Just read rotowire and they mention he's 26 (27 as of June 9th) years old. They weren't impressed by last season's numbers in AAA. "Anderson hit a thoroughly unimpressive .273/.324/.395 at Triple-A Nashville last season..." Apparently just fill-in fodder.

    better than Buck Coats... right?
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    You called it. milb.com has him listed as a left handed batter, who throws right handed. I can't believe there wasn't a spot for Carlos Guevarra.

    Re: Reds claim OF Drew Anderson

    From Fay:

    To clarify: Drew Anderson is not the Drew Anderson already in the Reds organization. This Drew Anderson is a left-handed hitting outfielder. (the Reds apparently cannot have too many of those). The other Anderson is switch-hitting infielder.
    Hard to get too excited about this. Pretty low risk though...

    The Reds seemingly cannot ever have too many fringe outfielders.
