MESA, Ariz. — Below, here are a handful of swing GIFs from Miami Marlins prospect Brian Anderson, all taken from our video of his at-bats during Arizona Fall League action in October 2016 while playing for the Mesa Solar Sox.
Anderson, the Marlins’ top infield prospect, led the Solar Sox in home runs last fall; one of those home run swings (as well as a slow motion version of the swing, too) is among the GIFs shared below.

GIF #1: Anderson swinging through strike three in the dirt against Surprise:
GIF #2: Anderson fouls off a pitch against Surprise:
GIF #3: Anderson fouls off another pitch in the same at-bat vs. Surprise:
GIF #4: Anderson finishes that long at-bat vs. Surprise with a very, very long home run:
GIF #5: Here’s that same home run swing, slowed down:
That’s a pretty swing, and a pretty good visual example of why Anderson is the Marlins’ best position player prospect entering 2017. Good bat speed, great hand-eye coordination, and a leg kick & timing mechanism that, when he gets it all in line like he should, give Anderson a shot to have decent power as he grows up and fills out over the next few years.
He’ll impact the Marlins on the big league side of things by mid-2018, in all likelihood. Until then, click through our links and posts on him for more from his minor league career and time in the AFL in the fall of 2016. Also, follow our Prospect GIFs Twitter account for more minor leaguer GIFs.
