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!
FanGraphs relievers stats over the last seven days:
The Angels bullpen has allowed 12 home runs over the last seven days along with an opponents batting average of .273 They have a low swinging strike percentage of 10.2 percent during this span as well. Their 44.9 percent fly ball percentage is one of the highest and their left on base percentage of 100 which is impossible to sustain.
The Mariners bullpen has had to cover 39 innings over the last seven days. They are allowing a hard hit percentage of 47.5 percent which has led to seven home runs. They are not missing any bats with a low swinging strike percentage of 9.5 percent.
We have mentioned the Blue Jays bullpen over the last week and their high left on base percentage being unsustainable. We are starting to see the regression as they struggled on Wednesday night. They are not getting ahead of hitters with a first pitch strike percentage of 51.6 percent over the last seven days. They aren’t missing any bats either with a slow swinging strike percentage of 9.2 percent. Finally, they have a fly ball percentage of 46.9 percent during this span.
The Phillies are allowing a slugging percentage of .662 to right-handed hitters in the month of June. This has led to eight home runs.
