  • Right Off the Bat: How to Utilize Batted Ball Statistics

The Pitcher Type You Can Exploit

One of the things that I try to do as a fantasy owner—and what’s happening here—is sort players into buckets based on what “type” of player they are. We’re using batted ball profiles in this course to define player types, but we could really include anything we want as long as we weigh it according to how much it aids in projecting players.

Side note: I think this is actually the future of BvP, and really overall player analysis. I don’t really use Batter vs Pitcher data myself except to help predict ownership levels in tournaments, but I don’t think it’s useless in theory. It is natural to assume that certain batters will hit certain pitchers better than others due to a whole bunch of factors. The problem is that it’s just tough to identify who is “good” and “bad” based on past numbers because we normally don’t have a sufficient sample size.
