He’s had nearly 2,500 innings at the big-league level and his DRS is -2. The best you can say about him defensively at shortstop is that his ceiling is “average”. If he hit like Correa, he could stick, but he doesn’t.

Tim Anderson is the second coming of Starlin Castro, who was the second coming of Shawon Dunston. Move Anderson to the outfield as soon as possible and utilize that speed and arm where it can do you good. Or suffer the consequences as the Cubs did with their miscast shortstops.

Anderson clearly has a lot more footspeed and range than Starlin Castro ever did. Moreover, DRS is dubious under normal circumstances and even more so in the era of micro and macro shifting for every single batter.
