.290???

Wow, I'm guessing these projections are for his prime. But .290 as a full time MLB player would crazy impressive.

These numbers would easily put him as the #2 2B in MLB. I am not ready to give him that title yet.

I think he is a nice player but slightly overrated right now. He should definitely hit for a good BA and some power/speed.

I agree with him being overrated. I don't trust rookies as starters but he could be worth a late round look. Who knows, maybe I'm wrong.

The only thing that would surprise me about these numbers is the .380 OBP. Kendrick does not take walks. Given a .290 BA, a .340 OBP would probably be optimistic.

But other than the OBP, those numbers look reasonable to me. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Kendrick's career BA is .300+
