What does WHIP mean in baseball stats?

WHIP = Walks plus Hits per Inning Pitched

Add the number of walks to the number of hits,
then divide by the total number of innings pitched.


If a pitcher walked 5 batters and gave up 42 hits, over 39 innings pitched,
then the WHIP would be calculated as

    (5 + 42) / 39 = 1.21

In 2013, Ambidextrous pitcher Henry Knight had a 1.21 WHIP

In 2012, Pat Venditte had a 1.31 WHIP (Yankees AAA)
