In this chapter, we evaluate both starting pitchers and relief pitchers using the aggregate performance model presented in the Chap. 5. For both classes of pitchers, we choose three outputs: innings pitched (IP), innings pitched per earned run (IP/ER), and innings pitched per hit (IP/H). The measures chosen here are consistent with Mazur (1995), who used earned run average, hits per inning pitched, and the ratio of base on balls to strike outs.
