It’s time for monthly grades for the Dodgers, and today we will start with the bullpen.
The Dodgers have had a slew of storylines throughout the first two months of the season. One of the best storylines so far is the success of the bullpen. The team’s pitching as a whole currently owns an MLB-best ERA, FIP, fWAR, K%, BB% and basically any other stat you can think of.
Large thanks need to go to the elite bullpen the front office has assembled. All together they have been lights out this season and had a 24 2/3 inning scoreless streak this month until it was snapped last night. Let’s take a look back at the month of May to evaluate each piece of the bullpen’s production throughout the month. It’s crazy to think how, just two years ago, the bullpen was the Achilles heel of the team. Now it’s arguably the team’s strength.
