Baseball’s best fielding pitchers

John Dewan of BIS has a new “stat of the week” out, and it’s a good one. BIS has been collecting fielding data for six years now, but one item they’ve never published is a “plus/minus” leaderboard for pitchers. Now they have, and it turns out that the writers have been right on this one: perennial Gold Glove winners Greg Maddux and Kenny Rogers are the two plus/minus leaders among all pitchers, and by a wide margin.

John will publish a new version of the Fielding Bible early next year. Be sure to watch for it from ACTA Sports.
