The Leaders & Laggards for BABIP are just for those starting pitchers who have made three or more starts. I did that to filter out the pitcher who had just a spot start or hasn't made it through the rotation more than twice. But why not show those starters who have just a start or two? Wouldn't they be prime candidates for a violent correction? There are a few of these who are scheduled to start twice this week assuming a full week of games.
Justin Masteron pitches Tuesday for the Boston Red Sox and will be a pitcher fantasy teams want to know a lot about whether for keeper leagues next season or those who believe a Red Sox starter is an excellent play on Wins this year. Don't you want to know that he has a BABIP of .138 in his two starts this year?
How about San Diego Padres fill-in Josh Banks who just threw nine scoreless innings? Don't you want to know if he was just lucky according to BABIP? A .292 BABIP says he didn't accumulate 17 scoreless innings this season due to an unusually low BABIP.
BABIPs for starters with one or two starts:
