Last week I posted my Mariner’s hitter projections for the upcoming season. This time, I am going to talk about my predictions for the rotation in 2013. Like before, I used FanGraphs’ projection system. For pitchers, the system asks you to pick a stat range for the following categories: Games, Pitcher Role, IP/Game, Wins, Losses, ERA, K/9, BB/9, and HR/9. It then takes those ranges, and puts them together to create a more accurate and coexisting stat line, as opposed to the person just picking their own numbers that may not jive together.
Here are my projections for the starters I see playing a significant role this year. There are sure to be more due to injuries and such, but those are difficult to project, so I didn’t worry about them. Side note, you will also notice that the pitcher stats are less specific than the hitting stats, and that a lot of the numbers will be similar from one pitcher to the next.
