And for players that don't have 3 full seasons, you could use MLEs although you will probably only have basic stats and not batted ball data for minor leaguers. To account for incline and decline in numbers depending on age, you could incorporate an aging curve, but that's a lot of work as each stat kinda has its own curve. Overall it looks really good.
I did look at MLEs a bit to project the younger players. I also toyed around with aging curves, but I couldn't figure out exactly how I wanted to do it and it seemed like it would take a lot more time than it would have been worth. I might try some more work on that next year though.
