Jason Kendall Projected

New, 5 comments

As a community, the bcb projection is more optimistic about Jason Kendall than marcel, zips, and chone.

Interestingly though, we are more pessimistic on the playing time. Estrada last year played in 120 games, and under Ned Yost, regular rest for the 'full time' catcher seems to be standard operating procedure. One of those things that the community can see that these projection systems cannot. We are also optimistic about his walk and contact rates having seen a big change in him between Oakland and Chicago and knowing that he's had eye surgery in the off-season.
