Any out recorded by the pitcher that is not well-hit or due to something out of his control such as an outfielder throwing out a runner at home, or a catcher back-picking a runner. Well-hit balls in play are not Pitcher Positives. Reaching on Error (but not well-hit) is a Pitcher Positive, as is Fielder’s Choice with no out on the play. Strikeouts are weighted at their full value (1); other outs are scaled by one half.
