Anderson promoted to Triple-A


According to multiple sources, Lars Anderson has been promoted to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Anderson has gotten off to a red-hot start in 2010, hitting .355/.408/.677 with 5 home runs and 16 RBI for Double-A Portland. In his 17 games played, he has smacked 5 doubles, while drawing 7 walks and striking out 16 times.

Drafted out of high school by the Red Sox in the 18th round of the 2006 draft, Anderson split time between Greenville and Lancaster in 2007. After starting the 2008 campaign with Lancaster, he was called up to Portland on July 15. Anderson posted a combined line of .317/.417/.517 that season, his highest totals of any season to date. He also posted career highs with 18 home runs and 80 RBI. By the end of the 2008 season, Anderson found himself atop the SoxProspects.com prospect rankings.

After struggling in his first full season at the Double-A level in 2009, Anderson currently sits as the fourth-ranked prospect in the organization according to SoxProspects.com.
