Ugueto Effect

[ Return To Top ]

The Ugueto Effect is name given to the phenomenon in which very poor players are associated with very high PECOTA Breakout scores. It was named for Luis Ugueto.

Because it is far easier for a player like Ugueto to improve upon his production by 20 percent than it is for Alex Rodriguez; as a result, Ugueto's Breakout score is likely to be higher. This does not mean that Ugueto is a player you'd want anywhere near your roster.
