Talent Ratings are statistically-generated ratings for batters and pitchers based on yearly comparisons against their peers. The ratings are not based on a pre-determined benchmark such as the scouting ratings used by scouts. This is not based on actually seeing a player's physical skills. These ratings are based exclusively on statistical history and can be used to help predict a player's fantasy usefulness and possible career projection.
A player is ranked compared to peers in each league type for each season he has played predicated on a minimum number of at-bats or innings pitched. Ranked players are assigned a number ranging from 100 to 1 with equal distribution to each score. The worst player receives 1 while the best receives 100. Depending on the number of players eligible, there could be more than 1 or more 100 assigned. For a player's career (including the college data we have), the rankings for each rating is averaged providing a final score. Since all scores are averages, there is not equal distribution between ratings.
