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 Marlins have allowed a hard contact percentage of 54 percent over the last seven days. Their ERA during this span is 1.65, but they have an xFIP of 4.43, which more accurately reflects their recent performance. Their left on base percentage is an unsustainable 91.3.
Lost in all of the trades over the last few days – and the impact those trades could have on bullpens we’ve looked to target against all year long – is that the Orioles didn’t make any moves and are still bad. They have allowed seven home runs over the last seven days with a flyball percentage of 46.9 percent.
The Padres are allowing a hard contact percentage of 54.4 percent over the last seven days which has led to an opponents batting average of .339.
