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:
Daily reminder that the Mariners love giving up home runs as they allowed another on Tuesday night. This brings their total to nine over the last seven days.
The Phillies and Tigers used a combined 12 pitchers in their 15-inning affair. The Tigers bullpen has been struggling, but did pitch effectively on Tuesday night. It remains to be seen the impact from both teams using so many pitchers.
The Twins are allowing an opponents batting average of .365 over the last seven days including a hard hit percentage of 47.2 percent. This has led to four home runs.
The Rockies bullpen has struggled at home, but it carried to the road as well as they allowed eight earned runs on Tuesday night. Over the last seven days, they are allowing a hard hit percentage of 50 percent, a flyball percentage of 44.4 percent and an xFIP of 5.02.
