Royals UZR/150 Projections for the 2010 Season

Earlier this year I released my own set of UZR/150 projections.  Now that the Royals have finally set on the basics of a roster, let's look at how the players project to do defensively this season.  Here is a list of how each player projects to do at each position they have played previously over the last 4 years (link to a primer article on UZR):

Name Position Games at Position (last 4 years) UZR/150
Alex Gordon 1B 32 1
Billy Butler 1B 192 -4




Willie Bloomquist 2B 56 -2
Alberto Callaspo 2B 205 -3
Chris Getz 2B 113 -4




Mike Aviles SS 125 6
Alberto Callaspo SS 32 1
Willie Bloomquist SS 87 -4
Yuniesky Betancourt SS 595 -10




Alberto Callaspo 3B 35 2
Alex Gordon 3B 319 -1
Mike Aviles 3B 9 -2
Josh Fields 3B 146 -8




David DeJesus LF 283 11
Rick Ankiel LF 44 3
Willie Bloomquist LF 33 2
Scott Podsednik LF 277 -2
Josh Fields LF 22 -2
Billy Butler LF 6 -2
Alberto Callaspo LF 6 -3
Jose Guillen LF 49 -5




Brian Anderson CF 298 0
David DeJesus CF 288 0
Scott Podsednik CF 88 -3
Rick Ankiel CF 177 -5
Willie Bloomquist CF 100 -5




Willie Bloomquist RF 90 -1
David DeJesus RF 26 -3
Jose Guillen RF 350 -11

 

Using the lineup of:  Butler (1B), Callaspo (2B), Betancout (SS), Gordon (3B), Ankiel (RF), Podsednik (CF) and DeJesus (LF) here is the projected defense:

With Gordon out and Callaspo going to 3rd and Getz to 2B, looks like the defensive may improve.  I might do more of these graphs depending on what kind of lineup Hillman and Moore continue to think up.
