The next player in the Mets360 preseason projection review is Shaun Marcum. The original piece with the projections can be found here. As a group, the Mets360 staff projected the following line for Marcum: IP – 160.2 ERA – 3.68 K – 125 BB – 47 HR – 17 Marcum was an example of what’s been a typical off-season acquisition for the Alderson-led Mets teams: a veteran looking to reestablish his value signed to an incentive-laden deal. Sometimes this type of deal works out for the Mets (like Chris Capuano in 2011) and sometimes it doesn’t (like Marcum in 2013). Marcum was signed to fill the void in the rotation left by the trade of R.A. Dickey and came as an injury risk. It didn’t work out for either side, as his season was cut short in July when he underwent surgery to correct numbness in his pitching hand. With that in mind, let’s see how the Mets360 staff did on each of their projections versus Marcum’s actual results: IP – 78.1 Best – Joura (115) Worst – Mcwilliam (190) ERA – 5.29
