This is one of the better/more realistic projections I've seen about Bailey.
I agree to a point. I think the ERA is within the range I would go with (although I am thinking more 4.25-4.50) but the walk rate doesn't jive so well and frankly neither does the hit rate. A 1.43 WHIP with those innings and those walks means he would project Bailey to allow 99 hits in 130 innings. I think the WHIP is roughly in line, but with more hits and fewer walks over that time.
