The rest of season projections for Max Scherzer are absolutely ridiculous.
- IP: 46.5 - He should get about 14 more starts if he stays healthy the rest of the season. For his career he has averaged over 6 innings per start. SO lets just say with the previous injury (that he’s fully healed from) and maybe the Mets hold him back alittle (they wont), if he goes 5 innings per start thats 70 IPs. Most projection sites range from 71-88 innings the rest of season
- ERA: 4.63 - Most projection sites say an ERA ranging from 3.01 to 3.15. I would say that a reasonable. His first two starts coming back from injury have been 13 innings on 1 run ball… This estimate is unrealistically high
- WHIP: 1.62 - His WHIP in his rookie reason was 1.23. His highest WHIP ever was 1.35 in 2011. 1.62?!?! Where is this number coming from? He has never come close to a WHIP that high.
All I’m asking here is to update the projections for him rest of reason. Its clouding the analysis that this site provides and its overly aggressive in a bad way.
