Tim Anderson: Open to playing SS or 2B
Anderson is open to playing either shortstop or second base with his new team, Russell Dorsey of Stadium reports.
Anderson's defensive metrics at shortstop were good through 2021, but they've regressed there the last two seasons, and it's possible the club he signs with in free agency would prefer to shift him to the other side of the diamond. He played two games at second base for the White Sox this season and they kicked around the idea of moving him there full time before ultimately deciding against picking up his option for 2024. The 30-year-old was also used some at the keystone during the World Baseball Classic. Regardless of where he plays defensively, Anderson's bigger task next season will be to rebound at the plate after he posted a woeful .582 OPS across 524 plate appearances in 2023.... See More ...

Tim Anderson: White Sox decline option
The White Sox declined Anderson's $14 million option for 2024 on Saturday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.
After putting up just a .582 OPS across 524 plate appearances, Anderson will receive a $1 million buyout and enter free agency for the first time in his career. Although his production at the plate fell sharply in 2023, Anderson should still draw a good amount of attention this offseason from teams hoping the 30-year-old shortstop can return to form....

White Sox's Tim Anderson: On bench Sunday
Anderson is not in Sunday's lineup against the Padres.
Elvis Andrus gets the nod at shortstop with Zach Remillard getting a start at the keystone. The White Sox have a $12.5 million club option on Anderson for next season, but considering he was below replacement level (-0.6 fWAR) in 123 games this year, he will likely hit the open market....

White Sox's Tim Anderson: Collects four hits
Anderson went 4-for-5 with a run scored Monday against the Nationals.
Anderson is in the midst of a five-game hitting streak, with his last two performances being multi-hit efforts. Despite a down year, he is closing the season well, as he's maintained a .333 average with eight runs scored and a stolen bases across 16 games in September. However, as has been the case, he's shown very little ability to hit for power, as he has only two extra-base hits -- both doubles -- in that same 16-game span.... See More ... See Less

White Sox's Tim Anderson: Scratched with stiff neck
Anderson was scratched from the lineup Wednesday versus the Royals due to neck stiffness, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Elvis Andrus will replace him at both shortstop and leadoff as the White Sox wrap up their three-game series against Kansas City. Anderson also battled some neck discomfort in mid-August but it cost him only two games. Perhaps he can utilize Thursday's scheduled team off day to avoid another multi-game absence.... See More ...

White Sox's Tim Anderson: Hitting for extra bases
Anderson went 1-for-6 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored Wednesday against the Orioles.
Anderson has started eight games since returning from suspension, and he has struck out a 39.5 percent clip in that span. Though he hasn't homered, he has balanced his lack of contact with five extra-base hits and has also scored five runs. It remains a disappointing campaign for Anderson, though as the White Sox's leadoff hitter, he could be a source of stolen bases and runs scored across the final month of the season.... See More ...

White Sox's Tim Anderson: Returns from suspension
Anderson (suspension) will start at shortstop and bat leadoff Wednesday against the Mariners after being reinstated from the restricted list, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.
Anderson initially received a six-game suspension for his involvement in an Aug. 5 brawl with the Guardians, but the ban was later reduced to five games last Thursday following an appeal. After sitting out each of the last five games, Anderson is back in action and should resume duties as Chicago's everyday shortstop. Elvis Andrus had been serving as the White Sox's primary option at shortstop while Anderson was out but should now compete with Lenyn Sosa for playing time at second base.... See More ... See Less
