Here’s the second and final version of the composite projections. Since the last version, I’ve incorporated updated projections from a few of the providers, and a few providers adding projections on some additional players.
Once those all were averaged together, I adjusted projected playing time to my expectations, focusing on likely regulars and key bench players, starting pitchers and key bullpen members. Conversely, playing time projections for lesser bench players, low leverage relievers and Quadruple-A players should not be taken too seriously.
Note that I didn’t project Rasiel Iglesias and Jason Marquis making the Reds rotation, or Brad Penny making the White Sox rotation, so the playing projections on those guys and a few others might not be close to reality. Then again, I doubt many leagues are hanging on Marquis or Penny as difference-makers!
Finally, I put some minor tweaks on the actual performance projections based on past performances, trends, spring training updates, etc. For instance, if a projection came out to 20 homers, I might have bumped it down to 18 or 19, or up to 21 or 22, but there were no drastic changes made.
Good luck in your drafts!
