How does the community project Royals infielder Raul Mondesi for 2017?

With eight entries to examine, here are the community projection results for Kansas City Royals infielder Raul Mondesi:

95 games, 328 at-bats, 38 runs, 73 hits, 13 doubles, 4 triples, 3 homers, 15 walks, 93 strikeouts, 25 steals, 4 caught, 2 HBP, slash line .221/.260/.315.

Comparing to other projection systems:

Steamer: 70 games, 247 at-bats, 27 runs, 57 hits, 9 doubles, 4 triples, 5 homers, 13 walks, 71 strikeouts, 15 steals, 6 caught, 2 HBP, slash line .231/.271/.360

For some reason there is no ZIPS projection on Fangraphs.

PECOTA: 211 at-bats, 25 runs, 45 hits, 7 doubles, 3 triples, 5 homers, 9 walks, 66 strikeouts, 11 steals, 2 caught, slash line .222/.251/.361.

In this case, community expectations are in line with the projection systems in batting average and OBP, but is more pessimistic for isolated power. Everyone agrees that Mondesi was rushed and his tools are universally respected, but short-term outlooks are not enthusiastic. Long-term, you can still find observers who love him and think he’ll blossom, but there are more skeptics than there were a year ago.
