Hitter projections for the 2020 Milwaukee Brewers

Welcome to the 2020 edition of the RW23 hitter projections for the Milwaukee Brewers. RW23 — creatively named after Rickie Weeks — was created in 2017 with the help of Mike Podhorzer and his book, “Projecting X 2.0: How to Forecast Baseball Player Performance.” Since its existence, RW23 has gone toe-to-toe with major projection systems Steamer and ZiPS. After the season ends, I’ll compare RW23 to both of those projection systems in order to see what system had the better year.

Remember projections are just projections. Don’t take them as fact. But feel free to bash them in the comments section.

    Your projection system is great (and I’m not just saying that because I was a huge Weeks fan), I enjoy seeing how they stack up with ZiPS and Steamer every year. I think RW23 is just as good, if not better than those.
