2011 Rays Projections: Ben Zobrist

March 22, 2011 at 10:31 am 2 comments

I won’t bore you with a long post about how Ben Zobrist will bounce back because quite frankly I already wrote it.

Bottom line was that Zobrist was still swinging the same percentage of time but he was letting more strikes in the zone go by and swinging, yet making weak contact, at more balls out of the zone. This is easily fixed, especially by a guy that works as hard as Zobrist and the projections show a big bounce back. Take a look:

 Stat  Total
 AVG  .272
 OBP  .376
 SLG  .449
 OPS  .825
 Plate App.  627
 At-Bats  530
 Hits  144
 Homeruns  19
 Doubles  29
 Triples  4
 BB  92
 SO  106
 SB  22
 UZR  +11


My gut had him in the .270/.380/.470 range with the article I wrote about him bouncing back and the projections are a little short but not too far off. Zobrist bouncing back is a key component to the Rays’ 2011 success and my money is on him doing so and possibly eclipsing the above projections.
