Anderson’s Arrival Delayed a Day

General manager Ned Colletti said newly signed pinch-hitter Garret Anderson did not arrive as scheduled Friday because of car problems, but was expected in Arizona Friday night and at practice Saturday. Anderson was signed Wednesday night to a Minor League contract and is the presumed front-runner for the left-handed pinch-hitting job, with Brian Giles and Doug Mientkiewicz the other candidates. Mientkiewicz had an RBI double and a walk in Friday’s exhibition opener. Giles did not play.

Anderson will wear No. 00, although Andre Ethier offered to give up his No. 16, saying Anderson had worn it for 16 years. — Ken Gurnick
