Slugging Percentage (SLG) Leaders: 2015 MLB Season

Slugging Percentage attempts to measure the power of a hitter by comparing the total number of bases a player gains divided by the total number of at bats. Players that hit with power (gain additional bases) will have a higher amount of total bases for each at bat, which is reflected in a higher Slugging Percentage.

SLG = (1B + 2*2B + 3*3B +4*HR)/At Bats

Also referred to as "SLG."

More about Slugging Percentage (SLG) Leaders

Player Slugging Percentage Leaders are generally among the best power hitters in the game, though slugging percentage is somewhat of an antiquated way to measure power.  Slugging percentage is measured by taking the total bases acquired by a batter (1 for a single; 2 for a double; 3 for a triple; 4 for a home run) and dividing by total at bats.  A slugging percentage of .550 or higher will now put a player among the league leaders, though in the early 2000s a slugging percentage north of .600 was needed.  Batting outcomes that do not result in an official at bat (such as a walk, sacrifice, sacrifice fly, hit by pitch, etc.) will not be counted for or against a player in determining slugging percentage.
