Lars Anderson is the top power prospect in the Red Sox system. For obvious reasons, he's a name to keep an eye on. He is undoubtebly one of the top three prospects in the Red Sox system right now and, hopefully, will be playing in Fenway Park very soon.

Anderson in Portland; finds the power stroke
Anderson was quickly promoted to Portland (AA) following the All-Star break after hitting 13 home runs, knocking in 50 RBIs while sporting a .317/.408/.513 line at Lancaster (A+).

Anderson struggled at first. His batting average sat well below .300 with no home runs and it looked like he needed to adjust -- and adjust he has. Since July 30, Anderson is 11 for 23 with eight runs, 10 RBI, four walks and two home runs, including a grand slam yesterday.

The most interesting stats for Anderson, a lefty, is his home and away splits. While at home, Anderson is hitting just .238. But on the road he's hitting at a .393 clip with a 1.149 OPS.

I forgot to mention: Anderson is only 20-years-old.
