Dodgers sign Anderson, Windle and two other selections from Draft


LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers today announced the signings of four selections from the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, including their first round pick, Jacksonville (FL) University right-handed pitcher Chris Anderson, and their second-round selection, University of Minnesota left-hander Tom Windle. The club also announced the signings of 12th-rounder Adam Law, a third baseman out of Brigham Young University, and their 26th-round pick Thomas Taylor, a right-handed pitcher from the University of Kansas. Anderson and Windle will attend tonight's 7:10 p.m. game between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks and will be available to the media in the Dodger dugout at 5:00 p.m.

Anderson, a 6-foot-4, 225-pounder, went 7-5 with a 2.49 ERA and three complete games in 14 starts this season for the Dolphins, earning second team All-Atlantic Sun Conference honors. The 20-year-old junior limited opposing hitters to a .231 batting average with a conference-best 101 strikeouts in 104.2 innings pitched.

Windle, 21, went 6-4 with a 2.14 ERA in 14 starts for Minnesota as a junior in 2013, including tossing the first 9.0-inning no-hitter in Minnesota history on March 8 against Western Illinois.

Law, whose father, Vance, played 11 big league seasons from 1980-91 (1988 All-Star) and grandfather, Vernon, won the 1960 Cy Young Award with the Pittsburgh Pirates, led the Cougars in hits (76), stolen bases (14), batting average (.365) and on-base percentage (.440) as a junior team captain at BYU in 2013. He was recognized with All-West Coast Conference First Team honors in addition to an Academic All-WCC selection this past year.

Taylor tied for the Kansas team lead with six wins and posted a 2.33 ERA in 14 starts this season to earn a 2013 All-Big 12 Honorable Mention selection. Taylor struck out 66 batters to climb into fourth on the Kansas career strikeouts list at 237, and limited opposing batters to a .238 average this season.
