The Royals Trade for Josh Anderson

The Royals announced that they have acquired outfielder Josh Anderson from the Tigers for cash considerations.

Anderson is a “speed and defense” guy. His career numbers include: .283 AVG, .327 OBP, 3 HR, and 39 RBI in 135 major league games. But he was struggling in Detroit this season with just a .282 OBP and had recently been DFA. Bob Dutton reports that the Royals could have waited from him to clear waivers, but the Yankees were showing interest, so the Royals decided to make the trade.
