The 2018 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 2018 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 2018 season.

At mid-season, we will update the player projections 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 2018 Projection Season 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.

2016 Postseason Teams database is now available!


 

The 2016 Postseason Teams database includes all of the rosters, stats, ratings, manager profiles, park factors and other details that you need to play along with the 2016 MLB Playoffs. This release completes the trio of 2016 ZiPS Projection Database editions.

For this release, all players have been updated with their actual regular season stats (as of the end of play on Friday, September 30, 2016) and the player ratings have been carried over from the mid-season update of the projection database. In most cases, the 25-man rosters are our best guess since most teams had not announced their playoff rosters at the time of release. (Updated rosters are available in this community forum topic.)

Teams included in this database are the 2016 editions of the Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians, Texas Rangers, Toronto Blue Jays, Chicago Cubs, New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, and Washington Nationals. Here's your chance to manage all these teams in postseason play to determine the 2016 World Series Champion!


If you have already purchased the 2016 ZiPS Projection Season, you should be receiving an email notifying you that an update is available that includes the link to download the postseason teams file. Remember to check your spam/junk folder, but if you do not receive the update email, contact us at dmb_info@imaginesports.com.

The 2016 Postseason Teams set can also be purchased separately for $9.95.
