Brian Anderson Asks White Sox For Trade
3:47pm: Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times says Anderson "isn't going anywhere." The club has tried to trade him recently with no success.
1:21pm: Brian Anderson wants the White Sox to trade him, according to MLB.com's Scott Merkin. The 27-year-old outfielder explained to GM Kenny Williams why he believes he'd do better with another organization.
"I need to play every day and be an everyday big-leaguer," Anderson said. "I have more to offer. If it's not with the White Sox, then maybe it really is time for a change."
The former first rounder headed to Triple A with a positive attitude earlier in the week, after the White Sox activated Carlos Quentin. Anderson has a .238/.322/.319 line this year with a pair of home runs in 65 games.
