Community Projection: Zach Duke

Duke pitched 3 2/3 decent innings today and was already a good bet to make the rotation, so let's project him. Predict his 2009 innings pitched, strikeouts, walks and ERA, in that order in the comments. As a bonus, guess opponents' on-base percentage against Duke.

Here are the results of the community projections so far, including the Andrew McCutchen projection, which is now closed:

Ryan Doumit C .289/.346/.477 115 games played .287/.343/.463
Adam LaRoche 1B .279/.350/.508 10th HR on June 11 .268/.343/.485
Freddy Sanchez 2B .300/.332/.419 548 PAs .285/.324/.398
Jack Wilson SS .271/.313/.360 Last 2009 game w/Bucs: August 13
Andy LaRoche 3B .264/.361/.436 124 starts .232/.325/.363
Brandon Moss OF .260/.333/.460 48 extra-base hits .251/.312/.403
Nate McLouth CF .276/.355/.480 First CS on May 21 .261/.342/.459
Nyjer Morgan OF .274/.318/.348 43 games at leadoff .262/.315/.318
Andrew McCutchen OF .264/.334/.392 169 at bats .261/.337/.362


Paul Maholm SP 184.3 IP, 132K, 58BB, 4.00 ERA 12 wins 180.7 IP, 120K, 60BB, 4.53 ERA
Matt Capps RP 64.3 IP, 55K, 13BB, 3.13 ERA 26 saves 71.7 IP, 55K, 13BB, 3.25 ERA

The McCutchen projection is pretty reasonable. PECOTA's projection (subscription required) is virtually identical to ours, at least in terms of the rate stats. I think the projection for 169 at bats may be a bit pessimistic, if anything.
