2017 Mets Stat Projections Meta – Analysis: Rene Rivera

It took over a month but we are finally done! Here is our last stat projection, Rene Rivera.

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 be blunt. Rene isn’t playing for his offense. He hits bombs. He doesn’t hit anything else really. He’s not expected to. His bombs are really bonus.

Rivera has great defense and is super important to the stability of the rotation. The hope is the rest of the lineup can carry more of a lift when he plays.
