BABIP Leaders and Laggards

New, comment

The Top 10 leaders and laggards in BABIP for the coming week are below. Remember leading or lagging in BABIP are contrarian indicators. These are pitchers due for a fall (leading) or for improvement (lagging). I have used a screen of at least three starts to compile these Top 10s. The last column indicates whether the pitcher starts on Monday(M) or Tuesday (T). Under a seven-game week, pitchers starting on either day would be in line for two starts during the week.
