Royals acquire OF Josh Anderson

The Royals have acquired OF Josh Anderson from the Detroit Tigers for cash. Anderson, 26, was hitting .242/.282/.315 in 175 PAs for Detroit after being acquired from the Atlanta Braves for minor league pitcher Rudy Darrow. In 396 career MLB plate appearances, he has a line of .283/.327/.372 and is 24/28 in stolen bases opportunities. Last week he was designated for assignment by Detroit.

The Braves-Royals pipeline continues!

Anderson posted a terrific 30.0 UZR/150 in left field this year, and had a decent 7.6 UZR in centerfield last year for Atlanta. Anderson, a left-handed hitter, was originally a fourth round draft pick by the Houston Astros in 2003 out of Eastern Kentucky University. In November of 2007, he was traded to Atlanta for former Royals farmhand P Oscar Villareal.

Anderson is out of options and will report to the big league team. The Royals will make a corresponding roster move when he reports.
