There were frequent requests last week for a Crystal Ball regarding lefty Daniel Norris of the Detroit Tigers. Here it is. I will preface this by saying that I like Daniel Norris a lot, but worry about his ability to stay healthy. This CB assumes durability issues. You could also do one where he stays healthy and becomes one of the best pitchers in baseball for ten years.
The Crystal Ball is NOT a PREDICTION in the sense of me saying "this is how the guy will turn out." The idea is to generate discussion about a player by presenting one possible outcome for his career, based on what we currently know about him.
It is not just thrown together; I try to make them logical, based on the outcomes of players who were similar at the same stage of their career. Sometimes a CB represents a maximal outcome, sometimes it is more of a middle ground.
