[ Return To Top ]

A player's runs per plate appearance, relative to the league average - 100 means average, 120 is 20% better than average, etc.

RPA+ is computed as: RPA/lgRPA Where lgRPA is the league runs per plate appearance, adjusted to match a player's run environment (adjusted for park, in other words). The scale of RPA+ should correspond with that of OPS+ and similar metrics; it will produce the same rank order as True Average, however.
