Definition. Slugging percentage represents the total number of bases a player records per at-bat. Unlike on-base percentage, slugging percentage deals only with hits and does not include walks and hit-by-pitches in its equation. Slugging percentage differs from batting average in that all hits are not valued equally.

H/9 represents the average number of hits a pitcher allows per nine innings pitched. It is determined by dividing a pitcher’s hits allowed by his innings pitched and multiplying that by nine. It’s a very useful tool for evaluating pitchers, whose goal is to prevent runs, which are usually scored by hits.

Definition. WHIP is one of the most commonly used statistics for evaluating a pitcher’s performance. The statistic shows how well a pitcher has kept runners off the basepaths, one of his main goals.
