Year



Example of how the data can be used:
Before the 2009 season, Adam Wainwright was averaging 6.5 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9. He broke out at age 29 and upped his K/9 to 8.2. By selecting Adam's 2009 projection, a person can see how often similarly projected players “broke out”. The only comparable (similar K/9, BB/9, ERA, age and reliability) pitcher that threw over 150 innings in the next season that saw a higher jump in K/9 was Sterling Hitchcock from 1998 to 1999.

Note: Reliability means the amount of player data vice league average data used for the projection. Players or part-timers will have lower reliability then players that have been playing full time for 3+ years.
