I was pondering some stats that might have meaning or might not and one that got me curious is the following.

Not sure what to call it, but let's call it bases gained per plate appearance.

in short this would be the total number of bases gained by the hitter and the baserunners as a result of the action of the hitter divided by the number of plate apperances.

here is how it works.

a bases empty single, BB or HBP = 1

a bases empty double = 2

a bases empty triple = 3

a bases empty HR = 4

a single with a runner at first moving up to 2 = 2 (one base for the hitter, one for the baserunner)

a single with a runner at first moving up to 3 =3 (one for hitter two for baserunner)

a single with runner at first scoring from there = 4(one for hitter, two for baserunner)

a single with a runner at second moving up to third = 2 (one base for hitter, one for the runner)

a single with runner at second scoring = 3 (one for hitter, two for baserunner)

a grand slam, would be 10 (4+3+2+1)

a home run with a runner at second would be 6 (4+2)

a sac bunt would be 1 or 2 (or 3 on a squeeze) depending on how many baserunners there are

a sac fly could also be 1 or 2 or 3...

a SB would be 1 for the baserunner.
