K% Change

Due to popular demand and to decrease general confusion, K% has been changed from K/AB to K/PA.

On average, you’ll see players’ K% drop about 2% and, at the very most (rare cases like Adam Dunn), about 6%.

This is a site-wide change and impacts stats pages, splits, leaderboards, and graphs that contain K%.

Great, thanks. On a related note – are there plans for K/PA and BB/PA to be added for pitchers, in addition to the per 9 rates?

How about K/(AB+BB+SF-IBB) ?

I’m joking, but it’s hard to strike out on a HBP or an IBB.

I saw Howard swing at a pitch that bounced and then hit him in the leg, but I don’t remember if it was strike 3.
