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 picked on the Orioles bullpen with great success this season, but it should be noted that over the last seven days, they have pitched 17.2 innings and have not allowed a home run. During this span, they have the best strikeout percentage at 33.1 percent.
The Nationals bullpen snapped out of their season long struggles for a short stretch, but are once again a unit we can target. Over the last week, opponents are batting .318 which has led the unit to have an ERA of 7.45 over this span.
The Brewers bullpen has pitched 38 innings over the last week which is the most in baseball. They have also allowed the most home runs as well in this span with six. However, opponents are only batting .188 against them.
The Tigers were idle on Monday night, but over the last week, opponents are batting .325 and the unit has an 8.20 ERA. Right-handed hitters are slugging .485.
