Last month, we updated our Player Pages. Today we are debuting a new feature on the Season Stats and Game Log Pages.
But before I take you through that new functionality, I wanted to take a minute to express my gratitude for the outpouring of support we’ve received over the last week. At FanGraphs, we have two developers who build and maintain the site: David Appelman, who started the site in 2005, and me. I have worked primarily on the front-end tools for the past five years. We are constantly trying to improve our site by adding new tools or making our existing ones better, all to fulfill our mission of providing excellent baseball analysis and allowing you to conduct great baseball analysis of your own. All of this takes time and development resources. It can take 2-4 months to complete projects like updating the Player Pages or incorporating the RosterResource Depth Charts into FanGraphs.
We plan to keep working hard to create even more tools during this baseball-less period, so that when the game does return, the best possible site for your baseball research and analysis is there for you. Your membership enables us to do so.
To that end, you are now able to aggregate stats across seasons on FanGraphs player pages! To select a span of seasons, press the shift key and click on the rows you’d like to aggregate. Or, if you are on a mobile device, a quick double tap on a row will select the beginning and end of the span. The selected span is highlighted in a light salmon red color, and the resulting aggregated row, which shows the player’s stats over that span, is at the bottom of the span in a darker salmon red color. For the Season Stats, you can click on season cell in the aggregated row (i.e. 2012-2015), which will take you to the leaderboards over that span.
You are able to aggregate full major league season spans on the Season Stats page, as well as a span of games on the Game Logs page for both major league and minor league games.
There are some limitations to what you can select:
I code a bunch of things here. I really need to update my blog about statistics at stats.seandolinar.com.
Awesome!!! Is there any chance of adding swstr% to either batted ball or more batted ball on the player pages so that it will show up for minor leaguers without having to customize?
