Agent Scott Boras spoke about his new client Garret Anderson recently to Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times. Boras says Anderson wants to play every day, and could handle the outfield regularly for an NL club. He also said Anderson is four years away from 3,000 hits, a reasonable suggestion assuming he’s healthy and effective through his age 37-40 seasons. Rob Neyer says is this is highly unlikely. Jerry Crasnick spoke to an NL exec who believes Anderson has two or three years left.
Anderson was "a little surprised and disappointed" the Angels didn’t pick up his $11MM option, but he’s leaving the door open.
