Could This Former Shen Star Be Traded This Month?
Former Shenedehowa stand out Ian Anderson could be a potential pitcher traded by the end of the month. The third overall pick in the 2016 MLB draft still remains a part of the Atlanta Braves organization, but CBS Sports writer RJ Anderson believes Anderson could be one of top ten prospects on the move.

Originally the No. 3 pick in the 2016 draft, Ian Anderson has a starter's frame and the chance for three above-average offerings once he reaches full maturation, including a swing-and-miss curveball. The downside with Anderson is he continues to walk about four batters per nine innings in Double-A, which could postpone his big-league debut as he attempts to further refine his command. League sources have informed CBS Sports that the Braves are at least willing to discuss Anderson in negotiations, as Atlanta is loaded with young arms and continues its pursuit of a veteran frontline starter. Be it through trade or development, Anderson could prove to be the key in the Braves further upgrading their rotation over the coming months.
