Community Projection: Kenji Johjima
The results of the first community projection are in, as we had 142 people contribute their estimates for Johjima’s performance. Here are the results, and those of you on the email list can expect to receive the spreadsheet for Richie Sexson tomorrow.
Overall Projection: .291/.344/.468, 492 AB, 26 2B, 1 3B, 20 HR, 31 BB, 9 HBP, 51 K
High Projection: Mark S: .347/.429/.565
Low Projection: Natebracy: .268/.306/.403
Dave Projection: .276/.320/.434
Besides Mark S, the projections were all fairly neutral, with no one projecting an OBP over .400 or an OBP under .300. The overall projection is extremely close to the PECOTA projection and maybe a tad bit optimistic on the power end of the spectrum.
Overall, though, I think it’s a good representation of what we can expect from Kenji this year. This kind of performance should again make him one of the best catchers in the American League.
