D1Softball Analytics: Top 31-40 PitchersAnalysis
Some mid-major phenoms, a pair of Pac-12 aces and a Ragin’ Cajun make up the 31-40 top pitchers of the nation.
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.
