Expect to usually see these
updated shortly after the completion
of any week.
Unless otherwise stated, stats are based upon appearance in
Benchwarmer games, not in Major League Baseball.
Note: Because relief appearances are generated
for BW games through a 6-game average, there are actually 11 Major
League games that go into a 6-game BW week. Thus the bullpen
stats are derived per-game and per-inning averages. In 2005, BWB
started tracking the games in which a reliever is
actually used - so the bullpen stats give a better idea of the job
he is doing for your team.
Bullpen Statistics for each week and season-to-date display this
game-tracking approach - based on how they are being used in each BWB
game. Stats used in the League Leaders for the bullpen use
the older approach to calculation, which yield more realistic
numbers. And the team stats for the bullpen use the actual
lines as found in the BWB box scores, not totals of derived
