There's a positional adjustment down for 1B defense.  Something less for LF, something less for RF.  The rest all have positive adjustments up.  I remember the general issues from when the systems were all published, but that 1.3 wins for his career on defense is compared to all other positions, not merely first baseman.  That's the vaguery and problem with it as a stat.  Plus adding oWAR and dWAR don't equal bWAR, which makes it more of a weird issue.  Here's how Fangraphs explains positional adjustments.
