What’s your OPS and WAR/162 prediction for Rutschman next year?

I think he’ll put up .280/.370/.450/.820 next year after getting called up in May. Not sure how that translates to WAR but I’d guess about 4. 

This is almost dead on what I was thinking.  Of course, I now think you're a genius!  .820 and 3.8 rWAR/162 is what I was thinking.

Adley Rutschman currently has a .936 OPS in AAA (38 games) following .901 in AA (80 games).   Let’s have your predictions for his OPS as a rookie next year.

While we’re at it, take a shot at rWAR/162.   We’ll do that based on what percentage of the 162 games Rutschman is on the O’s roster, not the number of games he plays.   So, if he was called up after 40 games and posted 3.0 rWAR the rest of the way, that would be 4.0 rWAR/162.   

I’ll go first: .817 OPS and 3.1 rWAR/162.   
 

It seems likely that if his OPS is that high, his WAR would be higher.

I think that the metrics are going to love his defense, specifically fWAR and that will drive his win total over 5 with an OPS of 823.

I think the Fangraphs framing metrics will cause a significant gap between his fWAR and rWAR.

Probably but it also depends on when he comes up, since WAR is largely a counting stat.

Thats the hidden part of this conversation.  When do the Os bring him up?  Is it all season?  Is it as soon as the extra year kicks in?  Is it into May?  Is it after super 2 (usually late May/early June)?

The exercise if for rWAR/162.

Frobs kind of covered that by making it a rate, so it is WAR/162.

However, the conversation really probably becomes, how much does he catch?

If he catches 95% of his abs, and puts up that OPS, he'll be well above 3 WAR.

If he catches 60%, that's probably about right.

Btw, I think people thinking he’s not going to catch a lot are wrong.  There is no reason not to catch him a lot.  The best catchers catch a lot and do it from the time they enter the league.  Adley shouldn’t be any different.

I agree with this.
