Rank/project the following outfielders' 2010 OPS:

Jay Bruce
Drew Stubbs
Chris Dickerson
Jonny Gomes
Wladimir Balentien


Also, who will have the most major league ABs in 2010: Todd Frazier, Juan Francisco, or Chris Heisey?

I'll go first:

1. Bruce .840
2. Balentien .795
3. Gomes .770
4. Stubbs .740
5. Dickerson .730

I think Heisey will get about 150 ABs and post an OPS of .710. Frazier and Francisco will both get <100 ABs at the major league level.

Heisey gets the most at bats this season.

OPS probably isn't the right way to do it since OBP is worth significantly more than SLG.

In terms of OPS:
Jay Bruce
Jonny Gomes
Wladimir Balentien
Chris Dickerson
Drew Stubbs

In terms of something broader such as wOBA:
Jay Bruce
Chris Dickerson
Jonny Gomes
Wladimir Balentien
Drew Stubbs

In terms of WAR (factoring in defense):
Jay Bruce
Chris Dickerson
Drew Stubbs
Wladimir Balentien
Jonny Gomes

Agreed, RMR. Across the board.

Also, who will have the most major league ABs in 2010: Todd Frazier, Juan Francisco, or Chris Heisey?

Bruce .875 to .900
Gomes .850 to .900
Dickerson .750 to .775
Balentien .725 to .750
Stubbs .675 to .700

I'd say Francisco gets the most major league ABs of the guys mentioned. The Reds need some one who can hit RH Pitching and Heisey has some splits and Frazier isn't on the 40 man yet.

Just a WAG but I think Stubbs and Dickerson are splitting time in CF by the second half of the season. I also think they'll have Francisco in LF with Frazier getting some ABs there against lefties. Heisey and Dorn get some ABs in case of injury. I have a feeling that Balentein will be dealt before camp breaks and the find a taker for Gomes by the trade dealine.

Oh, and I think Frazier gets the most AB of that group -- but he gets them at 3B.
