When I set out to create the TPS formula I wanted it to be a dynamic stat. With that, if any changes were made, I wanted the number to stay true and I didn’t want to go back through 5 years of pitchers and change their TPS scores, based on those changes. Today I created a new TPS designation for when a pitcher has split stats as a starter and in relief. They are as follows:
Csr\TPS – Total Performance Score for combined stats as a SP and RP.
SP\TPS – A split Total Performance Score for pitchers used in a dual-role (SP/RP), but as a Starting Pitcher
RP\TPS -A split Total Performance Score for pitchers used in a dual-role (SP/RP), but as a Relief Pitcher
These designation will be incorporated into the daily performance mentions when practical.
