Community Projections: Left Field

Next up is this Ryan Braun character. He's pretty good. CHONE projects .307/.370/.566, ZiPS projects .295/.359/.554. I think this one is prime for some optimism, with some correction for the slight injuries Braun has had, coupled with the increased patience we've seen in the past two years. And after becoming comfortable with two years in left field, I think this could be something of a career year for Braun. Here's his Fangraphs page for further research.

We're not projecting a backup here. The number of at-bats that are left after Braun's total percentage in the form will be pretty small and be given to Gerut or someone like him.
