Pitching Analytics

What makes a pitcher exceptional? To identify those with the best performances, we have broken down pitching into three categories: Zone Control, Pitch Ability, and Durability. Zone Control is how well the pitcher controls the strike zone with strikeouts, walks, wild pitches and hit by pitch. Pitch Ability refers to the pitcher’s ability to pitch and uses statistics like WHIP, FIP and Opp SLG. Durability is largely based on innings pitched and batters faced.
