Thread: Holds question
05-06-12 03:49 PM #1
I couldn't find a thread to put this in, so forgive me for creating a new one.
Can someone explain to me what the hell counts as a hold?
For example. I have J. Benoit, who pitched a scoreless 8th inning today with a 3-run lead. Is that a hold? Why? If not, why not?

Re: Holds question
A hold is awarded when a reliever enters the game in a save situation, records at least one out, and leaves before finishing the game. So in the 5/6/12 Tigers game, Dotel, Coke, and Benoit all received holds.
It will probably show up as an overnight adjustment.

Re: Holds question
Holds are generally overnight!

Re: Holds questionA hold (abbreviated HLD, H or HD) is awarded to a relief pitcher who meets the following three conditions:
1. Enters the game in a save situation; that is, when all of the following three conditions apply:
(a) He appears in relief (i.e., is not the starting pitcher); and
(b) He is not the winning pitcher; and
(c) He qualifies under one of the following conditions:
(i) He enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs and maintains that lead for at least one inning
(ii) He enters the game, regardless of the count, with the potential tying run either on base, or at bat, or on deck
(iii) He pitches effectively for at least three innings.
2. Records at least one out
3. Leaves the game before it has ended without his team having relinquished the lead at any point and does not record a save.
I'm not quite sure that on the part that says "he pitches effectively for 3 innings" is correct. I think that should be pitching one of the last 3 innings?

Re: Holds questionHold (Hld) - A hold is credited to a relief pitcher who does not finish the game, but enters the game with a lead, and leaves a game with the lead intact. Effectively it's a statistic for "middle relievers".
