**What Is The Definition Of Isolated Power In Baseball?**

1. This statistic in baseball measures a batter’s power when hitting the ball. The formula used to calculate isolated power determines the number of extra bases a player averages per at bat. The abbreviation ISO is used to represent isolated power.

One way to calculate the isolated power of a player is to take their **slugging percentage** and minus their batting average.

The maximum isolated power a player can have is 3.000, which requires the player to hit a home run in every at bat.

**ISO = SLG Pct – Batting Avg.**
