2016 Projection Meta-Analysis: Curtis Granderson

Curtis Granderson was the hidden star of the Mets last year. He had a nice career rebound in pop last year smacking 26 homers, hitting almost .260 and getting on base at a .364 clip. Curtis is always an easy guy to root for and last year he was a joy to root for. What do the computers feel about Curtis for this upcoming season? Let’s take a look:

The computers see a slight regression, but this is normal for a 35 year old. It is worth noting that the progression the computers predict is still better than his 2014 season. It is also worth noting that one outlet, BP, has Curtis with more power than last year, which is great! If he has this average line next season, it would be a major success.

Notes:
Both ZiPS and PECOTA (BP) do not provide AB’s, so those are PA’s instead.
