I think he will do fine... But there are quite a few ifs in my book...

Ave, HR, RBI and runs should rise, assuming, and this is a big assumption, he is healthy.

Some other things to consider:
Playing time... I don't see being a problem.

Coors: Coors wasn't a typical Coors last year. Perhaps the humidification (is that a word?) was successfully in slowing the offense. But Coors was still the best htters park in MLB and Pro Player was in the bottom 3rd. I don't think this could hurt him...

Ok then, here's my less than expert numbers guess...
.270, 90 R, 30 HR, 90 RBI, 15 SB

I think that's a good analysis and a pretty good estimate in terms of actual numbers. A couple more points to consider might be:

Batting order: With the Rockies presumably not done dealing yet, it's hard to guess where in the order Wilson will bat. Obviously, this will be a major factor in determining his value.

Steals: This is mainly a sub-point of the above, but the Rockies' overall strategy on the basepaths isn't clear yet, especially with Pierre gone.

Playing time: As Grenade Teeth said, this really shouldn't be an issue, but the Rockies do have several young of's that they like...
