You don't project him for 112 games and set his value at that number because you are going to get 50 games of production from someone else. It is a controlled set of games off. His value should be 112 games of his stats + 50 games of replacement level OF - Value you assign to a roster spot for 50 games(which is always less than a replacement level player who is in your lineup). He is being undervalued in almost every list I've seen put out there.
The value people are assigning him is the value he has in a league like the pond scum league where there is no bench so you have to just take 50 games of no production at all to own him.

Yup, this is very key. You hear a guy will only get 400-450AB and you're thinking...no thanks. But if you know exactly when those ABs will come then it negates a lot of that problem since you can have someone else in for the time being. With that said, I still probably won't own him.
