Bullpens pitch 40% of 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!
We have highlighted the Rangers bullpen recently and they once again struggled as they allowed nine earned runs. Over the last week, opponents are batting .304. The Rangers still don’t miss any bats as their swinging strike percentage during this span is 8.9 percent.
The Angels relievers logged another five innings on Thursday night and have now pitched 41.2 over the last week. They have allowed the second hardest hit percentage during this span at 46.3 along with seven home runs.
The Pirates rank dead last in WHIP over the last week at 1.95 and opponents are batting .345 over this span which also ranks dead last. They also are allowing a fly ball percentage of 46 percent. Left-handed hitters are slugging .596 over the last 30 days which yes, ranks dead last.
