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:
Another week where the Pirates bullpen has struggled as they allowed 10 home runs and had to cover 34 innings. They have allowed a hard hit percentage of 46.9 percent over this span.
The Mets bullpen is checking all of the boxes that we look at when attacking a particular unit. Over the last seven days, they have allowed a hard hit percentage of 49.3 percent and a high walk percentage of 11.3 percent. Their fly ball percentage of 50 percent is second worst during the last seven days, only to the miserable Orioles. This has led to six home runs. Opponents are also batting .405 during this span. The next closest team is allowing opponents to bat .315.
Over their last 20 innings, the Indians bullpen is not missing any bats with a putrid swinging strike percentage of 7.9 percent. This has led to a fly ball percentage of 47 percent which has led to five home runs during this span.
