It is tough to expect Tim Anderson to be THAT good in 2020. He won the batting title in 2019 with his .335 batting average. He could still very well have a very good batting average in 2020. In fact, you could argue that the White Sox are banking on him having a very good batting average this year. They need him to repeat a lot of his 2019 season this upcoming year.

Not only is Anderson an important factor on the field, but he is also an important factor off the field. They see him as one of the faces of this team and a leader in the clubhouse. They need him to be the same player attitude-wise as well. The swag that he brought to this team in 2019 was so noticeable. He believes in what this team is doing and he wears that on his sleeve every day.

If Anderson is able to clean up some of his defensive errors in 2020, he has the chance to be one of the best shortstops in the game. He came out and said that his next personal goal is to win a gold glove. If he remains an elite contact hitter while being that good at defense, he will be one of the biggest impact players in the organization.
