FULLERTON, Calif. – Based off his four starts in the 2020 season, D1 Baseball ranked Tanner Bibee as the No. 7 junior pitcher in the country.
Bibee was nothing short of spectacular to start the season, posting a 2.73 ERA in 29.2 innings with 33 strikeouts and just five walks. The junior had 10.01 strikeouts per nine innings this season, leaving him with 8.39 per nine innings for his career to rank him ninth in the history of the program.
How D1 Baseball determined rankings:
"To identify those with the best performances, we have broken down pitching into three categories: Zone Control, Pitch Ability, and Durability. Zone Control is how well the pitcher controls the strike zone with strikeouts, walks, wild pitches and hit by pitch. Pitch Ability refers to the pitcher's ability to pitch and uses statistics like WHIP, FIP and OppSLG. Durability is largely based on innings pitched and batters faced."
"The rankings are based on the four weeks of statistics from the 2020 season. They are computed with an adjustment to account for park effects of the most extreme hitter and pitcher friendly parks, as well as an adjustment for a team's strength of schedule."
D1 Baseball gave Bibee a 90.1 in durability which ranked second out of 50 on the list of junior pitchers.
