2017 Prospect Projections: American League East rookies | MiLB.com

Standing 6-foot-7 and weighing 255 pounds, Aaron Judge probably has a tough time fitting into most crowds. This spring, however, the 24-year-old outfielder is hoping to do just that in what could be a crowded Yankees outfield.

This is the first in a six-part series using FanGraphs’ Steamer600 projections to look at how hopeful rookies and other prospects would fare if given full Major League seasons in 2017. Steamer600 derives the numerical portion of its name from the allotment of 600 plate appearances it gives to position players to put them on the same sample. Catchers are given 450 plate appearances, starting pitchers 200 innings and relievers 65 innings. Projections are based on performance, age, previous levels and other factors.

There have been issues with milb.com links coming up as not found when I click on them through BBTF. It happened with this one and it happened with the Matt Manning link. I was able to access the articles through milb.com itself each time, so it might be something worth checking on.
