LHP Tyler Anderson Earns No. 12 Ranking In Baseball America Hot Sheet

The latest Hot Sheet from Baseball America has a Colorado Rockies lefty, SP Tyler Anderson, taking the No. 12 hottest spot in all of minor league baseball. Anderson, a rookie out of the University of Oregon, currently sports a 2.49 ERA and 3.44 FIP through 90 and 1/3 innings of A-Ball pitching.

The Rockies selected Anderson, now 22 years old, with their first round selection (No. 20 overall) in the 2011 MLB June Amateur Draft. As a 22-year-old playing in the South Atlantic league, Anderson checks in a little older than the league average (21.7 years for pitchers), which could mean the Rockies will move him up soon in order to get him acclimated against a league with more commensurate talent levels -- assuming Anderson stays hot.
