Team Sacrifice Flies Allowed Per Game: 2015 MLB Season

Team sacrifice flies allowed per game is the average number of times a pitching staff allows a run to score from third base (or in rare instances second base) from a fly ball hit to the outfield that resulted in or should have also resulted in an out.

More about Team Sacrifice Flies Allowed Per Game

Given that with the exception of “late and close” situations in which the hitting team will gladly exchange a run for an out, a pitcher will often allow a run in exchange for an out in order to decrease the likelihood of allowing more runs in an inning, this measure is not particularly telling of a pitching staff’s effectiveness.  It is somewhat possible that a team with a poor defensive outfield may allow more sacrifice flies due to poor positioning and/or weak throwing arms, though defensive impact on this statistic would be minimal at most.
