D1Softball Analytics: Top 41-50 PitchersAnalysis
A star-studded group of pitchers make up our 41-50 of the top pitchers in the nation with big-time names out of Pac-12, Big Ten, and ACC.
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.
