The 2017 Projection Season - ZiPS includes three (3) DMB databases;
- ZIPS pre-season projections with Opening Day rosters
- ZIPS mid-season updated projections
- Playoff database
The 2017 Projection Season database includes projected statistics and ratings for over 2500 players generated using Dan Szymborski's ZiPS (sZymborski Projection System) projection system, including many top prospects; the 2017 MLB schedule; opening day rosters; and manager profiles set up with pitching rotations, batting lineups, and depth charts representing our assessment of how the players are expected to be used during the 2017 season.
With the 2017 download, we will be making the product dynamic – we will update the player projections around the All-Star Break to reflect performance in the season to that point and projected through the remainder of the season. At the end of the season, we update them again for the playoff teams.
The 2017 Projection Season - ZiPS database is available for order in the Diamond Mind online store now. The price is $29.95 and includes the initial Opening Day release, the mid-season update, and the playoff database when they become available.
Note: We have added two new DMB style ballpark diagrams for the 2017 season, Minute Maid Park (removal of Tal's Hill in center field) and SunTrust Park (opened in 2017). These image files are available for free download from the Park Images page on the Diamond Mind website.
