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 Mets bullpen continues to struggle as they allowed nine base runners on Wednesday night. Their xFIP over the last seven days is 5.25 and left-handed hitters are slugging .706 in the month of June.
The Astros used two position players on Wednesday night so the bullpen numbers are skewed, but they haven’t pitched to the level we are accustomed to in recent weeks. Right-handed hitters are slugging .599 in the month of June.
The Nationals bullpen is allowing a fly ball percentage of 46.3 percent over the last seven days which is the highest in baseball. This has led to four home runs. Opponents are batting .292 during this span and their xFIP is 5.68.
