Iso Isolated power. Iso is simply slugging percentage minus batting average. Iso of .200 or higher is very good. (Devised by Bill James.)

K/BB Strikeouts-to-walks ratio

RC Runs created. RC is a method of putting together basic stats in such a way as to give an idea of a player's overall offensive contribution. 100 runs created is a very good season. (Devised by Bill James.)

TB Total bases

SA Secondary average. SA evaluates the kind of things that don't go into a batting average. SA of .350 or higher is very good. (Devised by Bill James.)

Pro Production. Pro = OBP + Slg. Pro attempts to measure a player's rate of offensive production. (Devised by Pete Palmer and Dick Cramer.)

TA Total average. TA is another measure of a player's offensive output. (Devised by Thomas Boswell.)

The data displayed for each of the following fielding statistics are for the player's primary fielding position only.

Rng Range factor. Rng = (PO + A) * 9 / Inn. We include Rng for first basemen and catchers, although the large number of putouts each makes (first basemen on throws from other infielders, and catchers on strikeouts) do not reflect the player's own defensive ability. (Devised by Bill James.)
