ESPN MLB 2012 Projections For Derek Jeter: 36 HR’s, 117 RBI, 306 Hits

ESPN.com has projections for every player in the major leagues. Some of the projections at this time of the year will never pan out. Even the most ardent Yankee fan doesn’t  think Derek Jeter will finish the 2012 season with 306 hits, 36 HR’s and 117 RBI.

Same thing holds true for the projections for Matt Kemp. ESPN.com projects Kemp to hit 85 HR’s and drive in 196 runs. 

The projections for Albert Pujols are shocking saying that Pujols will hit no home runs, drive in only 34 runs and collect only 145 hits. His current percentage stats show just how bad a season Pujols is having in 2012, while his Angels flounder in last place in the AL West.

Batting Average: .224

On Base Percentage: .280

      Oscar, Thank you for the kind words about the blog. Shame that Derek Jeter is still having problems with his ankle. He is such a competitor that playing hurt probably made it worse and now he is paying the price, but hope he is ready to play on opening day.
