Anderson (knee) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson experienced knee soreness during Saturday's 8-3 loss, so it's no surprise he'll take a seat in the season finale in order to avoid a setback heading into the winter. Leury Garcia will fill in at shortstop for Anderson, who took a step forward as a fantasy asset this season with 20 home runs and 26 steals across 153 games. The 25-year-old was less productive in real-life terms, however, which was most notably reflected in his .281 on-base percentage.

Anderson is dealing with knee soreness and was removed from Saturday's game by manager Rick Renteria due to the game's cold weather, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson was subbed for Jose Rondon as Chicago took the field for defense in the bottom of the fourth. The breakout shortstop could enter the lineup for Sunday's finale, but his shareholders should watch for a lineup announcement before confirming him for their active rosters on the White Sox's final regular-season game of 2018.

Anderson went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson's third-inning shot was his 20th homer of the season, giving him the first 20-20 season (homers, steals) of his career. The 25-year-old shortstop has made strides in 2018: taking more walks, striking out less and improved defense. His batting average and on-base percentage, however, remain on the low side. A little more plate discipline may be in order. Anderson swings at 40.7 percent of the pitches he sees outside the zone (190th out of 202 players with 400 plate appearances). That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it can be when a player isn't making consistent enough contact.

Anderson (ankle) is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson was withheld from the starting nine after exiting Tuesday's outing due to a bruised left ankle. He isn't expected to miss an extended period of time, especially since he stated Tuesday night that he anticipated being in Wednesday's lineup. Consider him day-to-day ahead of Thursday's series finale versus Boston. Jose Rondon will start at shortstop in his absence.

EDGE Analysis

Wait for official confirmation once the Pale Hose make their evening lineup official, but Anderson seems to think he's fine and at the very least it sounds like he's not dealing with a more concerning injury.
