There might be some people who see Tim Anderson as a movable part but they might want to think twice. Well, unless the White Sox find an even more premier shortstop, Anderson should absolutely be a guy that they never consider trading in his prime. He has a lot of work to do but what he can do at the plate is very significant for this team going forward.
The man won a Major League batting title in 2019 which made his breakout season that much more special. He led the entire league in batting average and that is something that he should be very proud of. Nobody needs him to hit .335 in 2020 or beyond but being around .300 would be lovely. He also provides a sense of leadership that this team absolutely needs.
If he can clean up the errors on defense and continue his tear at the plate, he will elevate himself into the conversation with the premier shortstops in the Majors. Having a guy like that on a team-friendly deal makes him virtually untouchable. The White Sox better be getting the best package possible if they were to move a player like him otherwise he should be considered an “untouchable”.
