Recent MLB Injuries & Transactions to Baseball-Reference.com Front page

Posted by sean on April 15, 2014

Baseball-Reference.com Front Page

We've been running transactions and injuries on the site for quite awhile now, but I've added a small module to the very bottom of the front page highlighting recent ones. Clicking on the full report links will send you to, surprise, the full report.

Age Relative to League Added to Minors Player Pages – Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by sean on April 15, 2014

Example: Jesse Biddle Minor League Statistics & History - Baseball-Reference.com.

We've had the league ages available for a long time now, but a user feature request pointed out to me that it would be useful to have this on the actual player pages as age is probably a prospect's most important stat.

You'll see the difference between their age and the league avg right next to the column with their age.

Avg Time of Game added to Miscellaneous Team Stats Page – Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by sean on April 14, 2014

Example: 2014 Major League Baseball Attendance & Miscellaneous - Baseball-Reference.com.

Our game time data is more or less complete back to 1947, so we have added avg time of game to the Attendance & Misc. option under the "Other" tab on the year-league pages.

Manager & Umpire Challenges Added To Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by sean on April 11, 2014

Baseball-Reference.com - MLB Stats, Standings, Scores, History.

On the front page of the site, we now give a running total of the number of plays challenged along with links to the team-by-team totals and also to the manager pages.

challenges

On the Manager pages, we actually show the details of each challenge along with the scoring change (if appeal is successful) and leverage prior to the play. It would be nice to show the WPA change when there is a successful challenge, but our system would just take too many modifications at the moment to implement that quickly.
