2017 Mets Stats Projections Meta-Analysis: Jose Reyes

We wrapped up all the pitcher projections and now we can move on to the hitters!

There are a lot of stat projection publications available on the internet and magazine shelves. Rather than trusting one (although if I had to pick one, it would be Baseball Prospectus), I like to average the projections together. In a perfect world, I would take data from the several years I’ve done this to figure out how to weight the projections in the average, but for now just a straight average will be fine. This tends to round out the higher/lower outliers while still allowing them to have a say in the conversation. Let’s take a look at the average projections for Jose Reyes:

Average 467.5 445.14286 62.3 9.2 40.8 16.4 0.2656 0.31775 0.388875

Jose Reyes turned the Mets season around last year. The team was struggling to put runs across the plate and Reyes sparked the lineup again. He wasn’t the same as the Reyes of the past but it was still pretty good. The projections put him at about double the amount of AB’s, so not quite a whole season, putting up reduced power numbers compared to last year but similar slash numbers.

Reyes does present an interesting problem for the Mets. When he plays, he is the logical lead off hitter. When he doesn’t play, the Mets don’t really know who should lead off. This will increase his playing time throughout the season and probably see him at different positions.

2017 Mets Stat Projections Meta-Analysis: Wilmer Flores

This tends to round out the higher/lower outliers while still allowing them to have a say in the conversation. Let’s take a look at the average projections for Wilmer Flores:

Wilmer finally had the breakout season last year that were hoping for. It was just hard to see it under the uneven playing time, injuries and a constantly changing lineups. In 300 or AB’s though, he slammed 16 homers and hit .267. He is projected to hit just as well next year with slightly lower power in about the same AB’s.

The good news for the Mets is Flores is the super utility player they need. The bad news for the Mets is so Jose Reyes. And the outfield is constantly sliding around too, so the lineup will be constantly changing, but this seems to be where baseball is heading anyway.

It would be nice to see if Flores can do this again.

The Mets have 4 everyday outfielders. In pretty much every other universe that sentences is the season finisher for Juan Lagares except none of the Mets outfield options are actually center fielders. As such, Juan will probably see quite a bit of playing time at the end of games.

His numbers pretty much project close to his career average which is about 15 points better than last year in the average department.

The Mets season won’t be make or break on Juan Lagares batting ability. Their season will be hurt though if he cant move in the field as well as he done previous seasons.

There are two players who could be the difference between the Mets competing for a Wild Card and dominating the division: Lucas Duda and Travis d’Arnaud.

Travis d’Arnaud is no longer a prospect. He’s shown flashes of brilliance and has spent a lot of time on the DL at different points in his career. The projections aren’t great as they see him playing about 55-65% of the time hitting on par with his numbers from last year that were super limited.

What the projections don’t take into account: he took the wraparound out of his swing, which early spring has been a positive sign.

The Mets are in a strange place with Kevin Plawecki. He has hit in every level he has ever played in, but not the majors. That’s a shame for Kevin since Travis gave him many chances.

After d’Arnaud the Mets have Plawecki and Rivera. Rivera doesn’t hit much outside of the occasional homer, but his defense is amazing. The stat projections show what we know and fear about Plawecki. Little power (projected 3 homers) and little hitting for average (.230).

But catching depth is important.

Brandon Nimmo is in an interesting time in his Mets path. The Mets have 4 everyday outfielders, plus Juan Lagares, and no one is really a Center Fielder. As such, the projections think Nimmo only has slightly under 200 AB’s hitting 4 homers, and 23 RBI’s and about .250 batting average.

Nimmo is having a slight set back right now with the injury from the WBC and will definitely start in Las Vegas. While he is down on the depth chart, it’s nice to know the Mets have Nimmo as an option if needed.

Want to know how the Mets can wreck the NL East this year? Lucas Duda. If Lucas Duda can come back healthy this year and go on a few more hitting streaks and few less “not hitting anything” streaks.

The projections look good! No one really expects Lucas Duda to go the whole season, which is concerning, but even in only 430 AB’s, he’s projected to hit over 22 homers. His average is looking to return to normal (~.245).

I’m pulling for Lucas this year! And it looks like the computers are too.

Last year during this article I called Asdrubal Cabrera as exciting as a Turkey Sandwich. He’s a sensible choice at short stop and won’t disappoint you. Well he was amazing. He was hurt most of the year and still had a crazy good year and is a key part of the team while we wait for Rosario. Plus, he can play multiple infield positions which is good as the Mets are crowded all over the infield.

The projections do see a regression of about 20 points across the slash line and a reduction in power, but about the same amount of playing time.

The regression stinks but is not unexpected. Cabrera is older and had an astounding year. His projected line is still better than one I expected at the start of last year and I’ll gladly take it!

I’m amazed Curtis Granderson hasn’t received more attention the last two years. He was a critical part of both the 2015 and 2016 teams over performing both years hitting 30 homers last year. He’s projected to hit 24 this year, and there’s no reason to doubt he can do that or better.

I have a lot of faith in Granderson, he’s also my favorite player on the team, but with Curtis in the club house this and his numbers basically looking on par to previous seasons, the Mets have a critical piece of the lineup in 2017.

2017 Mets Projections Meta-Analysis: Michael Conforto

We wrapped up all the pitcher projections and now we can move on to the hitters!

There are a lot of stat projection publications available on the internet and magazine shelves. Rather than trusting one (although if I had to pick one, it would be Baseball Prospectus), I like to average the projections together. In a perfect world, I would take data from the several years I’ve done this to figure out how to weight the projections in the average, but for now just a straight average will be fine. This tends to round out the higher/lower outliers while still allowing them to have a say in the conversation. Let’s take a look at the average projections for Michael Conforto:

Well this is tricky. The Mets enter the season with one too many everyday outfielders. Michael Conforto is coming off a difficult year, and thanks to injuries in the Mets outfield, they got Jay Bruce. Now Conforto and Bruce are back. The projection programs are up and down to try to figure out how much play time Conforto will get this year. That being said, his slugging numbers seem constant, so they think he’s going to hit, and he’s projected to hit nearly 20 points better.

I would love to see Conforto play everyday. I just don’t see how it happens right now with the current construction of the team.
