CBS/SportsLine: Introducing ACES, A New Measure for Identifying Pitching Sleepers


I started contributing to CBS and SportsLine for this 2019 fantasy baseball season.

My inaugural post was about the new ACES metric I devised -- leveraging previous arsenal score work -- to identify the best pitchers looking only at their "stuff" (velocity, movement and command).

Despite it being only a two-season sample, the results were very promising -- ACES is among the stickiest metric I've seen and competitively predicts future ERA in line with projections and ERA estimators, and better than ERA itself.
