Prospect Anderson sent to Minors
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Jose Iglesias wasn't the only well-regarded prospect who got sent back to the Minor Leagues on Tuesday.

First baseman Lars Anderson, who is knocking on the door to play in the Major Leagues but simply doesn't have an opening on the Red Sox, was also sent down.

But not after he made a very solid impression on manager Bobby Valentine.

"Great camp," Valentine said. "He added to a scouting report that we had gotten before, with his ability to drive the ball to center and left-center. He added to his resume with his ability to play left field. Even though you only saw him a little in the game, we've seen him in practice. He's a good guy on a team. On another team, he could have made the big leagues."

Anderson will probably continue to work a bit in left field at Triple-A, which could not only make him more valuable to the Red Sox, but to another team that might have interest in trading for him.
