More about Baserunners Per Nine Innings Leaders

Pitching baserunners per nine innings are those who allow the fewest number of hits, walks, hits batsmen, and catcher’s interference against on a nine inning basis. A close relatively of this statistic that is more commonly used is WHIP (walks and hits per innings pitched), though that statistic is based on a single inning and does not take into account hits batsmen or catcher’s interference against (which are the least common ways for batters to safely reach base).  What this does not take into account is the types of hits allowed, such as whether hitters were more likely to reach base via a single or a home run compared to what is allowed by other pitchers, though it is still an important statistic that can be used to look at how often pitchers “stay out of trouble.”
