The Captain. What to expect from the heart and soul of this club? The goal this year will be to get him into 130 games this year. As to be expected, the computers had a lot of problems projecting Wright in terms of declines in performance and figuring out his playing time:
I think the average makes the most amount of sense, especially in playing time (thanks to BP assuming he plays every game in the season). That being said, the power numbers don’t make sense to me. If Wright plays to 460ish AB’s, I think he should have at least 10 homers. The declines in average make sense.
Both ZiPS and PECOTA (BP) do not provide AB’s, so those are PA’s instead.
