Last week RotoFanatic introduced our Park Factors for 2017-2019 which, in case you missed it, can be found here. In the Park Factors section, we broadly displayed how the sets of ALL Batters, Right Handed Batters, and Left-Handed Batters fared in each stadium. Additionally, our factors specifically broke down how each set (ALL, RHB, LHB) performed to LF, LCF, CF, RCF, and RF in order to give the reader a true sense of each stadium’s unique qualities and how they help (Or hinder) a player’s tendencies. This week RotoFanatic introduces its Schedule Factors.

Here is an indexed table of contents if you wish to skip ahead, otherwise there is a brief explanation underneath to explain for the Schedule Factors work:

How Do Schedule Factors Differ From Park Factors?

Park Factors are an evaluation of how each stadium performed over the last three seasons where Schedule Factors are a weighted measure of all of the stadium’s Park Factors that each team played in from 2017 -2019. For example, The Right-Handed Batter HR Factor to Left Center at Yankee Stadium is 87. However, the right-handed batters who play the Yankees’ schedule have a HR Factor of 93 to LCF over the last three seasons. The Schedule Factors take into account games at Toronto, Baltimore, etc. which have much friendlier left-center fields than Yankee Stadium’s

 

Why Are Schedule Factors Important?

The Park Factors are very useful in daily and weekly games as the DFS and fantasy owner can pretty easily ascertain the impact of the one or two stadium environments that their players will be playing in during any given week. However, the Schedule Factors tell the story of a player’s hitting environment for all of the games that they will be playing in. With the changes to the schedule in the 2020 season, the Schedule Factors can be even more valuable than normal.

 

How is the 2020 Season Different?

Last season teams played 50% of their games at home, with roughly 24% of their away games within their division, 20% within their league, and 6% at interleague opponent’s parks. In 2020, teams are still playing 50% at home, 34% of their away games within their division, 0% at the other divisional teams within their league, and 16% at their geographical interleague opponent’s parks. Additionally, rather than playing each divisional opponent on the road about 6% of the time teams will play an unbalanced schedule of 5%, 7%, 10%, or 12%, depending on the team. For interleague road games, rather than playing teams about 1% of the time they will be playing 0%, 3%, or 5%, depending on the team. Obviously, these new schedules can definitely impact how a team’s hitting and pitching environments play out from seasons past. Fret not, RotoFanatic has you covered with our 2020 Schedule Factors.
