The pre-season version of the 2013 MORPS Pitching projections are also now available in excel and pdf formats. Follow the links below to download your copy.
The pitching projections took a little more time to get ready. I’ve added some logic this year that adjusts the historical numbers when a player moves from a relief to a starting role or vice versa. A good relief pitcher and good starting pitcher can have 500 to 600 difference in batters faced over the course of a season. This makes it impossible to directly translate a relief pitchers performance to a starting role or a starter into a relief role. I’m hoping that my new logic solved this puzzle, at least from the point of view of sabermetric projections.
