WHIP stands for Walks plus Hits per Inning Pitched and is a relatively new statistic for pitchers. Add the number of walks a pitcher allows to the number of hits a pitcher allows and divide by the number of innings pitched. This gives you the pitcher's WHIP. Like ERA, the lower the WHIP the better. Example: A pitcher has pitched 100 innings, given up 30 walks and 90 hits. Add the number of walks allowed to the number of hits allowed (30 + 90 = 120) and divide by the number of innings pitched (120 / 100 = 1.2). The pitcher's WHIP is 1.2.
