Isaac Anderson was a starting shortstop on Rocky Mountain High’s 5A state championship baseball team in 2012. After being drafted in the 40th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers last week, Anderson began pursuit of a professional career this week. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound right-handed pitcher signed with the Dodgers on Sunday and was assigned to the team’s training facility in Phoenix. Anderson played two seasons for the College of Southern Idaho, making the transition to pitcher. He played last season at Wichita State, going 5-7 with a 3.94 ERA with 74 strikeouts in 77 2/3 innings. This was the third time Anderson has been drafted. He was chosen in the 34th round by the Kansas City Royals in 2013 and in the 19th round by the Cincinnati Reds in 2014. “This year, it was just the right timing and the right opportunity,” Anderson said. “So I decided I was going to sign.” Anderson has not been assigned to a team.
