The Chicago White Sox are so lucky to have Tim Anderson. He is the type of player that helps a Major League organization in every way. The White Sox are a better team on and off the field because Anderson is there. He is slowly becoming the face of the franchise and someone that everyone wants to hear from just as much as they want to watch him play the game.

It has helped that his game has improved big time over the past two years. In 2019 he won the Batting Title and came in second place in 2020. There is no doubt that he has developed into one of the best hitters in the world. It showed even more in 2020 as he was in the MVP conversation for most of the year. His teammate, Jose Abreu, won the award but he came in seventh place. He also added his first career Silver Slugger award for shortstop which is very impressive.

Anderson is one of those players that the White Sox are going to heavily rely on for a long time. He is getting better defensively as the games go along which is a positive for him as well. The future is bright with him leading the way. We are so thankful as a fanbase and media to have Tim Anderson as a member of the Chicago White Sox organization.
