What is the story on him? Is he with the Red Sox or did he choose college? Any projections on him or thoughts?

He signed with Boston back in August I believe.

Scouting Report: Large, powerful slugger with high power ceiling. Athletic for his size, plays first base well. Likely would have been an early-to-mid second round pick if not for high bonus demands.

I don't see any minor league stats on him. Did he sign late and just not play anywhere all year? Did he play any fall baseball anywhere?

I believe Lars Anderson began his professional career this fall in the instructional leagues.

I can't find any stats on him either, but I'm sure he's playing somewhere.

Anderson ranks #5 of BA's top 10 Sox prospects so I assume that means they signed him ;-D

Everyone thought he was going to go to college, which is why he fell to the 17th round. which is also why he signed late. It was actually a mild surprise he signed at all.

Anderson has great tools, but is unproven. It will be interesting watching his first proseason.

BA says he has the most power in the Sox farm system.

That is not saying much. In recent years, the Sox have devoted entirely too many resources to the Dustin Pedroia's of the world, who in my estimation are nothing more than bottom of the lineup filler if they make it to the majors. However, they have also devoted much of their recent drafts to the development of a pitching system, and BA has also taken note of that....they were rated with the best draft in 2006 by BA, and that makes me extreeeeely happy!!!!!!

Go Lars!

Dustin Pedroia was a mid second round pick (around fifty). The fact that he is a good defensive middle infielder and can get on base make him a solid pick.

The Red Sox have been concentrating on draft young power arms. Their philosphy is that the more young power pitchers they have in the minors the less often they have to give guys like matt clement 25 million dollars.


Lars was a great pick. Hopefully he can live up to his tools and be a middle of the order hitter by 2010.
