[ Return To Top ]

In PECOTA projections, the ERA Distribution chart displays a pitcher's ERA forecast at various levels of probability. It progresses in sequential intervals of five percentage points, ranging from a pitcher's 95th percentile forecast on the left, to his 5th percentile forecast on the right.
