Will there be an effort to recalibrate Fangraphs WAR based on defense dependent pitching statistics?

0 votes
Defense dependent pithcing statistics were a breakthrough in explaining previously anomalous pitching performances.

Willl this be reincorporated to predict WAR?

Maybe you don't know, maybe none of us know, but its a beautiful new frontier of information.

Yes and no.

The new pitching stats will not be directly included in pitcher WAR on this site. However, it is very easy to compare the fielding dependent and independent parts side by side on the leaderboards and player pages, so you can mentaly combine them in any way you like.

Along with mentally combining them, you can also mathematically combine them!
