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!
It’s amazing the teams that consistently pop up as being a bad bullpen. The Tigers could continue to struggle as they have allowed seven home runs over the last seven days. The Nationals are bad as well as they have allowed the same amount of home runs in this span. Both teams are not getting swings and misses either with swinging strike percentages under ten.
The Pirates allowed six home runs over the last seven days with a hard hit percentage of 42.4 percent. They continue to rank dead last against left-handed hitters in terms of slugging percentage as lefties are slugging .500 for the season.
The Royals are checking the boxes for a unit to target. Over the last seven days, they are allowing a hard hit percentage of 57.4 percent. This has led opponents to hit .321 during this span with five home runs. They are also not missing any bats with a swinging strike percentage of 8.9 percent. Lefties are slugging .492.
