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!
The Tigers continue to check every box when trying to figure out what bullpen to target. They have pitched a lot of innings as they have had to cover 30 over the last seven days. They give up a lot of home runs as they have allowed nine in this span. They also don’t miss any bats as they have induced a swinging strike percentage of only 8.9 percent in the last seven days. Left-handed hitters and right-handed hitters are both slugging over .486 as well. They are just plain bad.
The Rangers bullpen once again allowed multiple runs as they gave up three on Tuesday night. They had to cover 6.1 innings and only struck out two. They simply do not miss any bats and this has led to a hard contact percentage of 44.4 percent over the last seven days.
Over the last seven days, the Braves bullpen has allowed a hard contact percentage of 47.8 percent which has led to five home runs and an opponents batting average of .321.
The Pirates bullpen has allowed a hard hit percentage of 48.1 percent over the last seven days which has led to four home runs. For the season, left-handed hitters are slugging .505 against the unit.
