The Detroit Tigers have some intriguing projections for a few of their players next season, based on Fangraphs’ Steamer module.

The Detroit Tigers are 1.5 years into what is probably going to be a three-year rebuild. As such, the 2019 season may end up another forgettable one as this team trots out some middling talent while they wait for the talent-heavy farm system to reach the big leagues.

Steamer is a projection module at Fangraphs that was recently released with their 2019 projections. It does not give overall team predictions, but it does provide statistical projections for every player on the roster.

While it is a module, and of course it’s early November so numerous roster moves have yet to be made, it does provide an interesting look at which Tigers players may be poised to have better, or worse, seasons next year. Plus, it gives a look at what Detroit’s depth chart could look like, although Steamer seems to give Detroit a lot more at-bats than they have to go around.

We will look at that and a lot more in these five surprising statistics from the 2019 steamer projections:
