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!
Over their last 17 innings, the Diamondbacks bullpen has a 10.06 ERA which ranks dead last and rank 27th in swinging strike percentage over the last week at only 8.5 percent.
The Padres bullpen has allowed a hard hit percentage of 54.1 percent which has led to five home runs and an ERA of 6.35.
Over the last week, the Nationals have allowed an opponents batting average of .351 which ranks dead last. They also have a low swinging strike percentage of 8.4 percent.
We have mentioned the Tigers bullpen over the last week and they allowed two more runs on Tuesday night. Their ERA over the last week is 8.69 and opponents are batting .337. As noted with a few of the teams at the top, they also are struggling getting swings and misses with a swinging strike percentage of 9.8 percent.
The Orioles bullpen has pitched well lately, but looked like their old self on Tuesday night as they allowed a home run and five earned runs.
