Dan Brooks Joins BP as a Data Scientist

by Baseball Prospectus


Dan Brooks, a long-time friend of Baseball Prospectus and creator of the website BrooksBaseball.net, as well as BP utilities such as the PITCHf/x Leaderboards, the PITCHf/x Matchups Tool, and the Bullpen (Mis)management Tool, is taking on an expanded role at Prospectus. Along with continuing to run BrooksBaseball.net, Dan will be contributing to BP as a Data Scientist, helping to develop new ways to explore baseball data.

Dan will be part of the existing stats team, which includes Rob McQuown and Harry Pavlidis. He will also work closely with Jason Parks and the Prospect Staff as BP develops new features to enhance our comprehensive coverage and analysis of professional and amateur prospects.

Together, Harry, Rob, and Dan plan to refine the existing pitching metrics at BP, continue development of the RPM catching valuation metrics, create data-centric tools to better understand prospect development, and more tightly integrate the existing BP infrastructure with the state-of-the-art improvements to pitch tracking data that can be found at BrooksBaseball.net and PitchInfo.com.
