2006 Chicago Cubs Minor League MLEs

New, 13 comments

Jeff Sackmann, who is the SB Nation blogger for the Brewers at Brew Crew Ball, and whose statistical whiz-ness I am in awe of (he's responsible for the wonderful Minor League Splits website I have linked on the left sidebar, has done it again.

He has put together for me a set of major league equivalencies for everyone who played in the Cubs' farm system last year, down to low-A at Peoria.

There are the following caveats:

1. The stats are park-adjusted for the minor league park

2. MLEs are adjusted for league in addition to level

3. These are adjusted for major league park as well (though the MLEs at MinorLeagueSplits are not). Jeff used the park factors on this page.

4. The thresholds for inclusion are 20 IP for pitchers, 50 AB for batters.

5. Jeff included FIP as an approximation of ERA (he doesn't do runs or earned runs on MinorLeagueSplits.com). Here's a page that explains FIP if you are not familiar with that stat.
