The ZiPS projection system uses current and previous season stats to project how previous players with similar stats have historically performed. Here are the current projections for the ROS (rest of season) for the Royals hitters:

Notes:
  • Several people have stated elsewhere on this website that if Escobar continues to produce at this level and we get nothing from Cain and Odorizzi, we will "win" the Greinke trade.
  • Frenchy looks to have a decent season ahead of him. I don't see it.
  • ZiPs hates Yuni worse than we do.
  • The Moose is loose.
