The first of those lines is his actual 2016 performance. The second is his smooth-BABIP numbers you quoted above. The third is his ZiPS 2016 preseason projection.

This has been a good year for XB. The shape of it was a little weird, but that happens. Weaker contact - what usually drives BABIP down for prolonged periods - and weaker defense makes me concerned he was enduring an injury of some sort. I hope we don't find him off to a slow start next year and then it's revealed he had an undiagnosed injury dating back to this year. That aside, I assume he'll bounce back next year just fine.
