2015 Next Base Value and Total Base Value Leaders

Now that the season has begun, we can finally put the formulas to the test. Throughout this season we will be updating Total Base Value and Next Base Value leader in the top menu. Also, we will write about developments we find in regards to these two stats as the year progresses.

Out of the gate, the Cardinals dominated both categories, as they not only had more offense than the Cubs in game one but they also managed to advanced runners at a far better rate. Only Tommy La Stella, who didn’t qualify because he logged only 3 PAs, moved a base on the losing team. On the other hand, Kolten Wong didn’t grab a hit, however he made the most of his appearances on base by a scoring after a walk and stealing a base. Jason Heyward used two extra base hits to  accumulate his high TBv.

After game one, the Total Base Value Leaders are:

 Rank  Player TBv
1. Kolten Wong 1.750
2. Jason Heyward 1.400
3. Matt Carpenter 1.000
4. Matt Holliday 0.800
5. Jon Jay 0.750
6. Yadier Molina 0.500
7. Dexter Fowler 0.500
8. Chris Coghlan 0.500

10. Anthony Rizzo 0.250
11. Jhonny Peralta 0.200
12. Matt Adams 0.000
13. Mike Olt 0.000
