Bullpens pitch 40% off all Major League innings and are often forgotten about by people when making lineup decisions. Here at elitefantasy, we’re committed to providing 100% analysis of pitching, not just the 60% you’ll find elsewhere!
I feel like I write about this team everyday, but we have attacked the Orioles bullpen all season and that should not stop. I’m highlighting them again because they are just awful. The Orioles allowed another eight runs out of the bullpen on Tuesday night and now have a 10.16 ERA and 1.98 WHIP in the last seven days.
The Diamondbacks bullpen is allowing a hard contact percentage of 50 over the last seven days. The unit ranks 27th in strikeout percentage and has a 33.3 home run to fly ball ratio during this span.
The White Sox bullpen has had to cover a lot of innings as the unit has thrown 28 over the last seven days. They have played a lot of day games so not sure anyone has realized, but over this span they have allowed seven home runs.
The bridge from the Mets starters to Edwin Diaz have been a disaster as opponents are batting .321 over the last seven days. The Mets bullpen is allowing a fly ball percentage of 47.5 which ranks 29th in baseball over this span.
