Reaching on a fielder's choice isn't a good outcome.
If there is a runner on third and, hit a ground ball to short, and the shortstop chooses to throw home, that is, statistically, a fielder's choice, whether they get the out or not.   If they get the out then yes it is not a good outcome.  But if they don't get the out, it is a good outcome.   I'd credit the guy with an on-base in cases where they don't get the out.
