Considering Opening Day is a little more than three months away, the Philadelphia Baseball Review has begun analyzing the various 2014 projection models and will provide insight into each as they are released over the coming weeks.
Today, we examine the Steamer Projections for 2014.
The definition at Fangraphs is pretty clear: “If this player got injured and their team had to replace them with a minor leaguer or someone from their bench, how much value would the team be losing?"
So, what does a projected 24.5 WAR mean?
Yes, 73, the same number of wins the Phillies collected last season.
This article is the first in many we'll publish over the coming weeks about the 2014 Phillies and projections.
