PECOTA Update Available

by Joe Hamrahi

A new PECOTA spreadsheet was released today. Fantasy and Premium subscribers can download it by clicking here. If you haven't read Colin Wyers' article on the weighting changes that have been made this year, it's worth reviewing to fully appreciate these projections.

​The latest update includes:

  • ​A link to the PECOTA glossary
  • ​League (LG) affiliation column for all players
  • ​Players' first and last names in separate columns
  • ​Singles and total hits for batters
  • ​Updated heights and weights that conform to the MLB.com listings (we were using the ones from the SABR master player registry)
  • VORP column added for batters

We will continue to make tweaks and adjustments as necessary and will soon be publishing a FAQ article that addresses many of the comments and questions surrounding this week's release of PECOTA.

Projections for Japanese and Cuban players about to begin their first year in Major League Baseball are on their way as well. We'll have an update on those individuals this week.

Thank you for all your suggestions and support.
