Pirates Baserunning: Update 2

This is an update of a study I did 10 days ago in which I put the notion of poor Pirates Pirates Baserunning to the test.

The formula is: caught stealing 2b + caught stealing 3b + caught stealing home + pick offs + Outs on Base (caught advancing on a fly ball etc) / Plate appearances with Men on Base.

So, % of Outs = the percentage of baserunning outs made divided by plate appearances with men on base.


The Pirates are making an above NL league rate of outs on the base paths – second worse to only the LA Dodgers.
