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:
We mentioned that the Nationals bullpen had a strong ERA lately, but that their xFIP and left on base percentage suggested that regression was likely, and that’s exactly what happened on Wednesday night as they allowed six earned runs.
If you’re not targeting the Phillies bullpen right now, I’m not sure what to say. The unit once again struggled as they allowed six earned runs on Wednesday night and seven home runs over the last seven days.
The Mariners have allowed a flyball percentage of 43.1 percent over the last seven days which has led to eight home runs. Their xFIP during this span is 6.18.
