Phillies Defense Projects at the Top

Baseball Info Solutions recently projected Defensive Runs Saved for 2010, courtesy of John Dewan‘s Stat of the Week. It “evaluated each player’s defensive performance over the past three years and prorated their performance based on the number of innings each is expected to play this year.”

It expects the Mariners to be the best defensive team in baseball.

It ranks the Phillies second.

Mariners – 103
Phillies – 49
Rays – 48
Cardinals – 38
Astros – 37

It also listed its best projected defenders:

Seattle centerfielder Franklin Gutierrez – 24
Seattle shortstop Jack Wilson – 22
Phillise second baseman Chase Utley – 21
St. Louis first baseman Albert Pujols – 20
Washington third baseman Ryan Zimmerman – 19
