  1. I would love to see St. Louis with two top rookie pitchers. I have a ton of faith in our youth going forward, I just hope injuries don’t derail the train.

  2. Yes, I would have to say those projections (both of WAR and their overall numbers) need to be trimmed by approximately 25%. I especially found the projected strikeout rates overly optimistic.

  3. I think for the most part the innings pitched are a bit on the cationary side. I could see Miller, Archer, and Peralta throwing more innings than the fans project. I think their IP/WAR is a bit optimistic, but I don’t think their overall totals are that unrealistic if their innings numbers end up higher than projected.

  4. No Taveras? Boo

  5. List is by a counting stat (WAR), which leaves Taveras at a disadvantage. He is unlikely to get lots of MLB playing time due to the other outfielders in St. Louis.

  6. It would take an injury to one of the incumbent outfielders to get Taveras any serious playing time.

  7. Shelby Miller with the sore shoulder already. That pitcher list is probably going to have to change.

  8. Unless he really looks bad in spring training I would bet that Gyorko makes the Padres as their starting 2B.

  9. Especially with them potentially losing some MI depth due to suspicions about Everth Cabrera and Biogenesis. Could be something, could be nothing, but could impact the infield situation in Gyorko’s favor.

  10. Interesting that Zack Wheeler isn’t on this list at all, given that he ranked #1 in rookie ZiPS projections. I’d assume that its because he won’t be starting the season in the majors.

  11. If Leonys Martin were given 500 ABs or more, I think he’d out-hit everyone on the list – his defense though, meh.

  12. Hyun-jin Ryu as well — and his contract requires him to stay in the majors all year, so that excuse doesn’t apply.

  13. What does this mean? ” Sat at ca. 97 mph with fastball in majors”

    Google doesn’t know either. Thanks

  14. Yeah, I don’t remember seeing that (ca.) before and I’ve been around. Some kid writer showing off.

  15. Because Ryu has no minor or major league numbers, I don’t think he’s in fangraphs database yet, and so it’s not possible for the fans to give him any projections.

  16. It’s short for “circa.” Still unusual to see it used to describe a fastball.

    Comment by Dean Coolbaugh — February 21, 2013 @ 4:49 am

  17. Its because someone misused the Thesaurus function in MS Word. “Circa”, meaning “approximate”, is supposed to be used when referring to a date or a historical period. You cannot simply replace the word “approximately” with “circa” and think it will make sense 100% of the time.

  18. “Sat at [circa–that is to say, around or about; an an average, perhaps] 97 mph with [his] fastball [while pitching] in [the] majors.

  19. He’s no Yu Darvish.
