How does the community project Sanchez for 2017?

MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Philadelphia Phillies Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

We had just eight entries for the Gary Sanchez Minor League Ball community projection project, though they were all fairly similar. The results are:

126 games, 497 at-bats, 61 runs, 132 hits, 28 doubles, 1 triple, 26 homers, 49 walks, 131 strikeouts, 2 steals, 2 caught stealing, 4 HBP, slash line .265/.336/.483.

By way of comparison, formal projection systems give the following results:

Steamer: .268/.329/.491, 27 homers in 472 at-bats, 40 walks, 101 strikeouts
ZIPS: .255/.313/.490, 27 homers in 455 at-bats, 36 walks, 117 strikeouts
PECOTA: .261/.324/.482, 29 homers in 533 at-bats, 46 walks, 135 strikeouts

The community projection is right in line with the objective methods in batting average and SLG, but the community is a hair more optimistic in OBP, though not overly so.
