I will clarify. It is NOT a stat like the one's you so aptly use. After 30 years of coaching, after a trip to the mound in a stressful situation, we have found that our hitters receive a fast ball down the middle. Our players chart this on our clipboard under a document I created that charts what various pitchers throw or have thrown on certain counts, like a 2-0 change up etc.
We also suicide squeeze right after a trip to the mound during stressful situations and have stolen home the very next pitch after a trip to the mound.
We have also found that right handed hitters hit 90% of balls to the glove side of our third baseman and thus we play in the 5.5 hole a lot, except for No Double situations or other extreme cases.
Sorry for being so vague the first time.

You’re wrong! It’s exactly a stat like the ones I use. You track it, collate the results, then figure out how to present it in a way that’s useful. That’s a perfect way to use stats to understand the game and help in the management of the personnel.
