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 spotlighted the Pirates bullpen pitching well lately, but with a little bit of smoke and mirrors. That came to fruition on Thursday as they allowed four earned runs in five innings pitched.
The Phillies bullpen allowed another five earned runs on Thursday. Over the last seven days, opponents have a 54.4 hard hit percentage against the unit.
The Red Sox have allowed a hard hit percentage of 51.9 percent over the last days with an opponents batting average of .327. This has led to six home runs during this span.
