What is Field Value?

Field Value (FV) is the fielding rating for Stat Geek Baseball's New Player Rating value.  This rating is given to each player at each position they play during the season with over1 inning played per max games (162) at that position, as well as a total fielding rating given to a player for each season for players who played more than one position.  A minimum grade is given per position to any player with under162 innings played.

Each position has different maximum, average, and minimum rating values per the difficulty and value of that position, which folds into the overall value of PEVA for that season.

FV Scale Maximums
 Catcher - 2.10
Shortstop - 1.75
Outfield - 1.70
Third Base - 1.70
Second Base - 1.50
First Base - 1.40

Fielding Statistics as of 7-10-2011.  Based on Innings Played, Fielding Percentage, Range Factor, Stolen Base Percentage Caught (C), Assists per 9 IP (OF).  Midseason Fielding Ratings given for all players with minimum of 81 Innings Played at each position.

Fielding Ratings in the Stat Geek Baseball PEVA system are meant to give a grade that relates to value for payroll purposes.  A player with a low amount of innings played at a position may be rated lower for that purpose, but be a better defensive player.  They would be rated higher in the PEVA/FV system with higher innings played, but their FV is lower due to lack of use.
