The Plummeting Stock of Lars Anderson

The Indians acquired Lars Anderson from the Red Sox on Tuesday, sending knuckleballing prospect Steven Wright — not to be confused with this guy — to Boston. Anderson was once considered one of the top prospects in the game, but struggled in major league cups of coffee (or shots of espresso given how short his major league stints were in 2011-12) and was never viewed as a viable...

Minor leaguer breaks scoreboard with homer

Your browser does not support iframes. The guy you see in the video above is a player who the Red Sox once envisioned as their slugger of the future.

Lars Anderson Called Up; Repko To The DL

When the Boston Red Sox signed Adrian Gonzalez, the future for Lars Anderson as the first baseman in Boston pretty much went by the wayside. He spent all of last year toiling in Triple-A with the Pawtucket Red Sox and was almost traded to the Oakland A's at the trade deadline for Rich Harden. Unfortunately for him, that trade fell through and he was still a man without a...

Lars Anderson Proud of Sunday's Strong Performance After Rigorous Offseason Training

FORT MYERS, Fla. –– Sparta Performance Science was Lars Anderson's residency over the offseason. The Red Sox prospect spent his days training to bulk up and unload power in 2012.
