Angels bullpen usage in 2016

New, 3 comments

Who are Scioscia's favorites? Who does he go to when the pressure is high?

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

So how is Mike Scioscia's bullpen usage?  Much critique can be had. Who are his go to guys in tight situations?  Who shows up in games more often?  Who pitches more than 1 inning more times than anyone else?  The tables below are for your viewing pleasure.  This is all the bullpen usage to date (thought June 6th games) and includes all pitchers that have pitched in relief in 2016.

Jose Alvarez gets the nod more times than anyone.  Not surprising, Joe Smith and Huston Street face the highest average leverage situations.  Aside from them it goes to Fernando Salas who has 2 losses and 4 blown saves.  Apparently he doesn't take the pressure very well. If you go by # of high leverage situations instead of average leverage index, you will see that Jose Alvarez is tied for second with Joe Smith - right behind Fernando Salas who has pitched in 14 high leverage situations.

Scioscia may not have as much confidence in Cam Bedrosian as we would think, since he's near the bottom in average leverage usage.

Some notes on the column headings:
BSv = Blown saves
SvSit = # of save situations
IR/IS = Inherited runners / Inherited runners scored
1stIP = Most common inning to enter the game
aLI = Average leverage index (1.0 is average)
LevHi/LevMd/LevLo = # of times they enter in those types of leverage situations (high = Low = < 0.7, Med = 0.7 - 1.4, High = > 1.5)
IPmult = # of times they pitched more than 1 inning

All data is from baseball-reference
