Brian Anderson, a former outfielder for the White Sox and the Royals, made his Triple-A debut as a pitcher a rousing success on Thursday at Fresno. He pitched two perfect innings in relief in Omaha’s 6-5 victory.”He’s definitely throwing Major League stuff,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He’s got his fastball up to 97 miles an hour and his comfort zone is 95.”

Yost also said Anderson’s slider rates as Major League average quality and his pitch command just a tick below average.

“When he first did it, I wasn’t sure it’d work out for him, but he’s proven to me that it very well may,” Yost said. “Somewhere down the road I imagine he’ll get a look. I don’t know if it’ll be this September, it might be next spring, but he’s done enough to warrant that.”

Here are BA’s splits.
