Increased IP to 125 following SD signing
|Feb 28||Vidal Nuno|
Added five starts to 75 relieve appearances in Baltimore
|Feb 28||Yoan Moncada|
Bumped him to 10-4 stealing. Original was too conservative.
|Feb 28||Teoscar Hernandez|
Bumped him to 13-6 stealing. Original was wrong.
|Feb 28||Aaron Judge|
Changed him to 3-3 stealing. Original was wrong.
|Feb 28||Joe Blanton|
Bumped his innings to 90 upon signing with Washington. Seems destined for bullpen role.
|Feb 28||Pete O'Brien|
Bumped AB to 225. He should face lefties in platoon DH role with Moss.
|March 3||Mookie Betts|
Bumped AB to 650 and steals to 22. They were too anemic
|March 3||Josh Hamilton|
Cut him to zero AB after yet another knee surgery. At his age...
|March 3||David Price|
Great health news! But, health news. His risk of missing time has gone up, and he wasn't that sharp last year.
|March 8||Jake Lamb|
Boosted at bats to 600. Should play full time unless he gets hurt.
|March 9||Huston Street|
I already had him down for 48 IP, so his lat injury works with the projection. I didn't change anything, but the odds of missing more time does go up.
|March 9||Cam Bedrosian|
I already him him filliing in for an imagined Street injury. Now it looks like he's going get it at the start of the season.
|March 9||Ian Desmond|
Boosted batting average a little, added 30 AB. Didn't weight Coors effect enough.
|March 9||Christian Yelich|
Given his age, regressed his power too much. Look for a repeat of last year, if not more.
|March 9||Eric Thames|
Fixed his double projection, which was wrong.
|March 9||Odubel Herrera|
Bumped his at bats to last year's level.
|March 9||Nick Castellanos|
AB were too low.
|March 9||Albert Pujols|
Cut his BA, which was too high
|March 13||Ian Desmond|
Cut his AB to 500 because of injury.
|March 13||Jordan Patterson|
Gave him a projection of 175 AB because of Desmond injury
|March 13||Kyle Zimmer|
Cut his IP to 40 after he was sent down, and changed profile to relief if he is called up.
|March 14||Anthony DeSclafani|
Cut his IP to 150 after announcement of UCL sprain. He's going to miss at least a month.
|March 15||Jason Kipnis|
Cut AB to 500 after he goes on DL with sore rotator cuff.
|March 15||Jung-ho Kang|
Cut AB to 450 since he's still not here in the US due to visa trouble. But project BA to .270, seems more reasonable.
|March 22||JD Martinez|
Cut AB to 500 because of injury, will miss start to season.

Cut IP to 125 because of slow rehab and diminished velocity.

|March 22||Ariel Miranda|

|March 22||Hunter Renfroe|

Added projection, starting 3B until Kipnis comes back.
|March 23||Scott Feldman|
Added projection, opening day starter!
