I’m starting to think about building tools for next year’s MLB season. I’ve been playing around with the search at MLB.com’s Baseball Savant page (https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/statcast_search). It’s pretty cool but there are a few things I want to do with it that I can’t seem to make it do:
1. Is there a way to get other “expected” stats that aren’t listed in the drop-down? Specifically I’d like xISO and/or xSLG (don’t care which, they’re interchangeable once you also have xBA). The stats aren’t in the drop-down, and typing the appropriate stats directly in the URL fails. Alternately, any way I could get the underlying x stats (like x1B, xHR, etc) so I could build them myself?
2. Is it possible to do a query that returns results for more than one stat? So I’d like to get both xBA and xwOBA in the same webpage, for example. There only seems to be a single “sort by” option in the dropdown, but again I could be missing a hidden trick.
