BrocNessMonster helps run his family's engineering company in southern California, is a certified CrossFit trainer, and is an avid obstacle course racer. Growing up an hour outside of Los Angeles, Broc was a huge Dodgers and Angels fan until the Angels sold out their hometown. If it weren't for legen Vin Scully, Broc might not even know what baseball is. Just after high school, a Dodgers blog named Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness got him interested in advanced analytics. 
 
In 2012, Broc was introduced to DFS via Twitter, and has been obsessed ever since. If you can find his H2H in any sport but baseball, scoop 'em ASAP! Ha!

 DFS Pitching Breakdown - 7/28
Posted by Broc Miller on Friday, July 28, 2017 - 16:56

Definitions For Advanced Stats:

K%:  Strikeout Percentage = Strikeouts / Batters Faced. A 20 K% is considered average for a pitcher. 27 K% is considered excellent and 15 K% is considered poor.

For hitters, it measures how often a hitter strikes out on a per plate appearance basis. 20.0 K% is considered average. 25.0 K% is considered poor for hitters (we like that when picking pitchers) and 12.5 K% is considered great (we don’t like that when choosing a pitcher.) However, when looking at an entire team’s K%, last year's average was 21.2 K%. The higher the number, the better for when you’re looking for a pitcher with upside.

BB%: Walk Percentage = Walks / Batters Faced. 7.7 BB% is considered average for a pitcher. The lower the better. 4.5 BB% is considered excellent and 8.5 BB% is considered poor.
