Here are the community projection results for the young Pirates first baseman

MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Pittsburgh Pirates Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

There were only seven entries for the Josh Bell community projection. This used to be a much more popular exercise but I suppose that train has gone on. We’ll run a few more before shifting to other projects.

Here are the results for Bell:

133 games, 462 at-bats, 65 runs, 132 hits, 30 doubles, 2 triples, 15 homers, 60 walks, 97 strikeouts, 3 steals, 2 caught stealing, 4 HBP, slash line .285/.373/.459.

This is a bit optimistic compared to what other more formal systems show, although not totally out of bounds:
ZIPS: .270/.347/.426, 15 homers, 64 walks, 90 whiffs in 537 at-bats
Steamer: .280/.355/.424, 12 homers, 52 walks, 77 whiffs in 455 at-bats
PECOT: .281/.355/.442, 15 homers, 54 walks, 88 whiffs in 456 at-bats
