What concussions do to hitters, how handedness effects outfield defense, how Tommy John recovery rates are inflated, and other additions to the stathead literature this week.

Hello, friends, and welcome to a new edition of Everything You Could Have Learned This Week, a tradition unlike any other. I've been on spring break this week, giving me plenty of time to Snapchat pictures of my cats (find me at "ianmcfrazer") and scour the Internet for enlightening baseball writing, so this week's roundup is more robust than ever before. Enjoy!

DIBS, the increasing effect of the count, the for the Tommy John season, and more.

Welcome to the first edition of a new feature at Baseball Prospectus: Everything You Could Have Learned This Week. So much interesting baseball analysis and research comes out each week that it can be difficult to keep track of everything and pick out what's really cool, so who better than a college student working two jobs and taking 15 credit hours to walk you all through it? I've picked out a selection of pieces, ranging from complicated mathematical analyses to broad-based examinations of trends in the game, to get you caught up on the week in the sabermetric community.

Pitchers per start as a decent proxy for pitcher quality.

As Effectively Wild listeners know, each email episode includes a statistical query that I do using Baseball-Reference's Play Index tool. Sometimes the results are easier to see than to read, like this week's, so here's a companion article about the search. The question was: Who, since 2000, has thrown the fewest pitches per start in a season?

Saying goodnight to Kershaw Day.

We hope you enjoyed Kershaw day, and if you haven't, there are 13 swell articles for you still to enjoy here. Now, I've thought a lot about Clayton Kershaw fun facts in the past week, and I think I've finally settled on my favorite:

Clayton Kershaw's numbers would look even better if he didn't have such bad luck with his road ballparks.

Are you enjoying your Clayton Kershaw Day? We’re glad we can play a small part in spreading the awareness that he’s good at baseball.

Assessing the noteworthiness of a very rare achievement.

There are records that are very important and records that aren't important at all. Within each category are records that get lots of attention and records that get very little attention. Thusly:

Is the no. 100 prospect more loved than no. 99?

Over at Baseball America, John Manuel ran down all the No. 1 overall prospects Baseball America has ever chosen, from best (Alex Rodriguez) to worst (click over there). At the bottom of the post, he switches things up and talks about prospect no. 100:

Possession is nine-tenths of the law, except when it comes to shortstop.

There are phrases that get repeated in the BP Annual that we do our best as editors to avoid, like "at the highest level" or "advanced approach" or "command and control." Then there are the phrases that get repeated because they're so crucial to analysis that you simply can't avoid mentioning them often. Like whether the player who is manning shortstop in A-Ball is going to be able to man shortstop at the highest level in the majors. So I'd argue that this repetition is justified:
