Bullpen Chart - Sept. 6Posted by Max Marchi
Keep track of the available arms with the bullpen usage chart.
At the end of the post you will find the link to the PDF containing all the match-ups of Sept. 6. The charts show the number of pitches thrown by each team's pitchers each of the last seven days.
How to read them:
Above the thick line in each chart you see the starters, sorted by their WAR; below the thick line are the relievers, again best to worst according to WAR. Darkest colored cells indicate highest workloads. The probable starting pitchers are listed at the bottom of each chart.
You can read about the bullpen usage chart in this introductory article; some tweaks are still needed.
Bullpen usage chart - Sept. 6 (PDF ~ 600K)
Note: Some changes have been made to the charts since the first version.
- Pitchers now appear only on their current team;
- only pitchers with appearences in the last thirty days are listed;
- starters are identified using the last thirty days rather than the full season.
