FIP

Fielding-Independent Pitching = FIP

BREW MATHsummary

  • FIP attempts to isolate the things a pitcher can control:
    • Homeruns
    • Walks
    • Strikeouts
  • The Major Limitation of FIP is that it mostly ignores balls put into play
    • xFIP and SIERA have since built upon the ‘FIP concept’ and continue to refine the evolving metrics.
