More about Team Quality Starts

Team quality starts are a starting pitching metric counting the number of times a team’s starting pitchers achieved what’s known as a quality start (in which the starting pitcher pitched at least six innings and allowed no more than three earned runs). Over the course of a full season this can be used to determine an entire starting pitching staff’s overall effectiveness. Having a high number of team quality starts naturally gives a team more opportunities to win games, and by consistently pitching into the late innings of games it improves a team’s overall bullpen effectiveness by allowing them to use a greater share of overall innings thrown in relief by higher caliber relief pitchers.
