Welcome to the 2022 Fantasy Baseball Season!
Welcome to the start of our
2022 Fantasy Baseball Season! The start of what is expected to be a full MLB season,
lockout be damned.
As I have written in the
past, the art of MLB player
projections continues to evolve. With the advances in data collection,
there are new indicators introduced every season which aid us in breaking
down a player’s core skill/ability. Indicators that measure batted ball
speed, quality of contact, and location are helping us refine our
projections model into unprecedented territory. Indicators such as HR/FB
rates are no longer looked at as universal or blanket rates. Each hitter
has a unique ability to control and command these rates, and we’re finding
that the determining factors are more eloquent than just simply batted
ball speed. Directional tendencies are now charted and those with a
higher pull% tend to compensate for lower batted ball speeds, while those
with higher opposite field ability tend to command a higher BABIP.
Our batter projections model separates each projected plate appearance
into one of three categories: ground balls, fly balls, and line drives.
From there, indicators such as: quality of contact, speed, home park
factors, and direction of contact help us ascertain the likely outcome of
a player’s batted balls. Needless to say, I’m excited about the
correlation relationship that we’re seeing in our baseball forecasting
