MLB.com’s Scott Merkin reports that the White Sox are discussing a multi-year contract with shortstop Tim Anderson. Anderson, 23, made his major league debut last season, batting .283/.306/.432 with 37 extra-base hits, 30 RBI, 57 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases in 431 plate appearances. He won’t become arbitration eligible until the 2019 season, so the White Sox aren’t exactly under any pressure to get a deal done. That they are doing so indicates their confidence in Anderson becoming a great player.
