Pitcher projections for the 2020 Milwaukee Brewers

Welcome to the 2020 edition of the RW23 pitcher 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 systems in order to see which one had the better year.

You can find the 2020 RW23 hitter projections here.

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