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 has been a rough season for the Orioles bullpen, but the last three games it has been ugly as they have allowed 10 earned runs. Continue to target this unit with confidence.
We have highlighted the Rangers bullpen often. Over the last seven days, they have pitched the most innings with 34 and continue to not miss any bats. During this span, they have a swinging strike percentage of 7.6 percent which has led to five home runs.
The Rockies have the second worst xFIP over the last seven days, but the fourth best ERA at 2.21. If we look closer, we see they have a left on base percentage of 86.8 percent and a hard hit percentage of 43.3 percentage. They have allowed the fourth highest flyball percentage as well at 40 percent. The point is, just don’t focus on the ERA.
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.
