Anderson José Espinoza is a professional baseball player born in Venezuela on March 9, 1998. He plays the position of a pitcher for the Chicago Cubs baseball team in the Major League Baseball.
He was signed as an international free agent in 2014 by the Boston Red Sox baseball team. He was given an amount of $1.8 million as a signing bonus together with a $200,000 scholarship money.
After signing with the Red Sox, Anderson began his professional career in 2015 by playing for the Dominican Summer League Red Sox 2 of the minor league and an affiliate to the Boston Red Sox.
Anderson was ranked number 10 on MLB.com’s best baseball players list. He was also ranked number four on Baseball America’s international amateur prospect and top-ranked pitcher.
After two years of playing for the Red Sox, he was traded in July 2016 to the San Diego Padres. Anderson missed playing in any baseball game in the 2017 and 2018 baseball seasons as he had an elbow injury. He had to undergo a Tommy John surgery. This caused him to be placed on the team’s injury list for both seasons.
The 2020 minor league baseball season was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic so there were no games that season. The Padres traded him to the Chicago Cubs in July 2021.
