How does the Minor League Ball community project Nationals infielder Trea Turner for 2017?

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

We had just five entries for the Minor League Ball Community Projection for Trea Turner of the Washington Nationals. Here are the results:

152 games, 604 at-bats, 104 runs, 178 hits, 37 doubles, 8 triples, 16 homers, 48 walks, 128 strikeouts, 44 steals, 8 caught, 4 HBP, slash line .295/.351/.460.

Let's compare this to the results from the respected objective sabermetric projection systems.

Steamer: 142 games, 577 at-bats, 88 runs, 174 hits, 30 doubles, 8 triples, 15 homers, 41 walks, 119 strikeouts, 40 steals, 16 caught, 3 HBP, slash line .301/.347/.459.

ZIPS: 139 games, 546 at-bats, 77 runs, 154 hits, 27 doubles, 10 triples, 14 homers, 41 walks, 131 strikeouts, 35 steals, 7 caught, 1 HBP, slash line .282/.331/.445.

PECOTA: 589 at-bats, 93 runs, 165 hits, 28 doubles, 8 triples, 19 homers, 45 walks, 147 strikeouts, 37 steals, 6 caught, slash line .284/.334/.457.

I expected that the community projection would be the most optimistic and it is in regards to playing time and related counting stats like runs and steals. However, Steamer was actually a few ticks more optimistic in batting average. My personal expectations are closer to the ZIPs and PECOTA numbers.
