Top 2018 defensive highlights from Brian Anderson’s rookie season

After years spent developing as an infielder, BA was quick to adapt to his new position midway through the 2018 season. What’s the best fit for him? Watch and decide for yourself...

In Thursday’s Fish Stripes roundtable, the majority of our writers selected Brian Anderson as the Marlins major leaguer they’d be most comfortable locking up long term.

On a related note, what exactly is he?

BA began and finished the 2018 season at third base as Martín Prado struggled with injuries. However, the majority of the rookie’s playing time came in right field where he had zero prior professional experience. Despite some awkwardness when tracking balls near the outfield fence, he acclimated himself well overall—Anderson racked up 4 Defensive Runs Saved in his 91 games (765 13 innings) in right compared to -2 Defensive Runs Saved in his 71 games (592 23 innings) at the hot corner.

If it were up to you, where would BA be playing on Opening Day? Allow these highlights to inform your decision:
