Fielding Run Value
is Statcast’s metric for capturing a player’s measurable defensive performance by converting all of Statcast’s individual defensive metrics from different scales onto the same run-based scale, which can then be read as a player being worth X runs above or Y runs below average.
Currently, the conversions for those metrics are as follows.
(Unless otherwise noted, all metrics are available since 2016.)
How to read it:
