Fair Quality Starts
Uses the same basic framework as a normal quality start - at least 6 innings pitched (or 18 outs) and no more than 3 runs allowed. However, expected runs and outs from fair run average (FRA) are used instead of actual runs and outs.
There is also an adjustment made for a pitcher's level of defensive support, when compared with the seasonal run environment and the park where the game is played.
