Fielding Ratings in the Stat Geek Baseball PEVA system are meant to give a grade that relates to value for payroll purposes. A player with a low amount of innings played at a position may be rated lower for that purpose, but be a better defensive player. They would be rated higher in the PEVA/FV system with higher innings played, but their FV is lower due to lack of use.
