Wow, I'm guessing these projections are for his prime. But .290 as a full time MLB player would crazy impressive.
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+
The only number that I think will be really hard for him to get to is the 380 OBP. He only walks about 20-25 times a year so to have an OBP of 380 he would have to hit 340.....I'd be happy if he hit 290-300 next year. This is the guy with a 359 lifetime BA in the minors though so maybe 340 is possible.
