White Sox Acquire Lars Anderson

The White Sox have acquired Lars Anderson from the Blue Jays in exchange for cash considerations, according to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune (on Twitter).  Anderson was designated for assignment by Toronto on March 29th to free up room for waiver claims Alex Burnett and Clint Robinson.

Anderson, 25, spent most of the 2012 season at Triple-A, where he posted a .250/.353/.396 batting line in 470 plate appearances.  He also has 30 games of big league experience to his credit with the Red Sox from 2010-12.

The first baseman has done his best impression of Carmen Sandiego, having moved around quite a bit this offseason.  Anderson went from the Indians to the D’Backs in the three-team Shin-Soo Choo deal and before a series of roster moves led him to the White Sox, then the Blue Jays, and finally back to the White Sox.
