Week 5 Schedule Factors

Welcome to Week 5 of the 2021 MLB season. The below schedule factors are based on the published schedules for each team as of 12:00 PM CT on Friday, 4/23/21.

How Do Schedule Factors Differ From Park Factors?

Park Factors are an evaluation of how each stadium performed over the last three seasons (2017-2019) whereas Schedule Factors are a weighted measure of all of the stadium’s Park Factors that each team plays during the upcoming week. As far as what single metric is the best overall measure of a team’s schedule factors I personally use RBIcon for pitchers (Expected RBI generated by contact) and wOBAcon for hitters (Expected weighted on base average generated by contact).
