THE BAT X Projection System by Derek Carty

THE BAT X Statcast-Based Projections Were
The Most Accurate Original Season-Long Projections of 2020 & 2021!  

Derek Carty has developed THE BAT over the past 10+ years and 10,000+ hours, using skills and methods developed from his time in the sabermetric community working with some of the best baseball minds in the world, many of whom are now making decisions for championship-winning MLB clubs. THE BAT incorporates all the necessary basics, like park factors and platoon splits, plus many lesser-considered factors like air density and umpires to give you an edge on the competition. And starting in 2020, it began using Statcast data!

When tested, THE BAT proved even more accurate than Vegas and was the Most Accurate Season-Long Projection System of 2020 among those tested at FanGraphs! Plus, it works with RotoGrinders’ LineupHQ, helping you build your ideal lineups for both cash games and GPPs!
