Win Probability

This is an odd section, full of a bunch of statistics that aren’t related specifically with offense, defense, or pitching, and can instead be applied to all of those areas. They deal with the subject of run or win expectancy specifically, and context dependent stats more generally. A large portion of the stats available on FanGraph try to strip the context out of the equation to isolate player performance, they are the statistics that focus on how a player deals with those circumstances.

Use the drop down menu to read up on RE24, WPA, Leverage Index, and several others.
