Anderson Signs Late, Hits Often
The highest batting average for any player in the Dodgers Major League clubhouse belongs to the last one to sign — Garret Anderson — who seems close to locking up a roster spot as a left-handed bat off the bench.
Anderson had three more hits Sunday, raising his average to .438 (7-for-16) with one RBI, even though he didn’t sign until March 4. Doug Mientkiewicz, Anderson’s primary competition, is hitting a respectable .286 (6-for-21) with a homer and three RBIs. — Ken Gurnick
