    Default Hold Projections

    When do you expect the hold projections to be up to date? A couple teams don't show any holds currently, and the Astros only have Joe Smith getting holds. Thanks.

    I should have mentioned that the teams I noticed were the Angels and Dodgers.

    Just curious, but is there even a standardized definition of what constitutes a "hold?"

    There are many teams that do not add up to 100% on holds. Will they by the end of spring training as roles become more defined? Thank you.

    Yes, certainly by the end of spring, probably much sooner.

    Hardball Times ran an article recently on the topic. Entertaining but long, so your mileage may vary but I enjoyed the article: https://www.fangraphs.com/tht/the-un...d-blown-saves/

    The short answer is that although MLB doesn't define a "hold," we have reached an informal consensus on the definition, but it wasn't always that way.
    I realized that I was in the top 20 or whatever last year for hard-hit balls, but I was also fourth in the league in soft contact. That led me to think. A lot of that had to do with swinging at pitches outside of the strike zone." -- Kevin Pillar (2017)
