Gonzalez adds that Anderson will report to the White Sox Triple-A affiliate. Toronto designated him for assignment last week
Anderson had quite the eventful offseason leading up to this Opening Day deal. He was acquired by the Arizona Diamondbacks in December in the trade that also involved Shin-Soo Choo, Trevor Bauer and Drew Stubbs. The White Sox then claimed him off waivers from the D'backs in February, but he was then selected by the Blue Jays later that month.
Anderson spent six games with the Boston Red Sox last season, collecting one hit over eight plate appearances. He appeared in 30 games for Boston over the past three seasons, as he's spent most of his time at the Triple-A level since 2010.
A former top prospect of the Red Sox, Anderson hit .250/.353/.396 with 27 doubles and nine home runs over 470 plate appearances in the minors.
