Bullpen Usage Report

Here's another useful tool from the guys over at Daily Baseball Data.  Check out their Bullpen Usage Report, a quick way to look at how a team's pen was employed over the past four days.  I am not sure how to apply this data yet; let me know your thoughts.  Looking at today's report, a few notes:

  • Huston Street has pitched three days in a row, tossing 21 pitches yesterday.  Perhaps a save chance tonight goes to Matt Daley or is decided by matchups.
  • Brian Fuentes has gone two days in a row, and I don't see any streaks of three straight this year for him.  Maybe Darren Oliver or Justin Speier gets a look.
  • J.P. Howell has pitched three days in a row; a fourth day seems unlikely.  A chance for Dan Wheeler tonight?
  • Mike MacDougal has pitched back-to-back days for the Nats.  Not sure if Joe Beimel could be called upon.
  • Very cool way to present the data, though it would've been most useful late last night (updated through Sunday) so that I could potentially make pickups for today.
