Comparable Year represents the season analogous to the current projected year for a comparable player. For example, if Dick Allen is listed as a comparable, and the year listed next to his name is 1974, Allen's 1974 is used as a component of the player's forecast. It also indicates that Allen's Baseline performance entering into the 1974 season was similar to the Baseline performance of the player in question.
PECOTA constructs a 182-day interval on either side of a player's birthdate in order to match ages; this method is more precise than the Bill James similarity scores, which use a player's age as of July 1.
