  • How to interpret Team Depth Charts

    Quick question on in how to interpret the depth charts. If you playing time key is correct
    • For batters, each 5% of PT% ~ 31 AB (100% total for each position = 618 AB)
    • For pitchers, each 3% of PT% ~ 44 IP (100% total for a team's entire pitching staff)
    • For relievers, each 5% of Svs ~ 2 saves (100% of a team's total = about40 saves)

    when I use the current in-season depth charts shouldn't each team's total percentage at each position add up to 25-30% since there are approx. 45-50 games left - or do I base the playing time key and the 100% of games left to be played?

    Thanks

    We represent 100% playing time, all the time. It's always 100% of the playing time available from today through the end of the season.

    The guidelines you posted above are the full-season guidelines. That's how you would interpret each position's allocation during the pre-season (which is when the projections get the most attention, of course). We gradually reduce those guidelines every day during the season. We're about 70% thru the season right now, so you'd want to cut those baselines by about 70%.

      We're actually allocating plate appearances (approximated by AB + BB), not AB, for batters.

      We allocate based on 100% of the games left to be played. For each team/position combination (other than outfield, where three of them play obviously), the totals typically hit 100%.

        Thanks for the quick response - I suspected you were basing the 100% on games left and not 162 games, but I had to ask the question anyway.
