Fielding Bible Runs Saved Sample
A companion to the Fielding Bible Plus/Minus profile, this profile displays a detailed breakdown of a player's defensive skills, as evaluated by the actual runs saved or allowed by the fielder, compared to the average.
Each position is evaluated differently. Pitchers are evaluated by their plus/minus runs saved and stolen base runs saved. Catchers are evaluated by their pitcher handling earned runs saved and stolen base runs saved. Corner infielders, middle infielders and outfielders each have a plus/minus runs saved score based on their range in the field. Corner infielders also have a bunt runs saved score, while middle infielders have a double plays runs saved score. Outfielders have an arms score and a home run saving catches score.
