Only Archie Bradley made it through six innings of work through the first six starts of the year for Diamondbacks’ starters. Due to this the Diamondbacks’ bullpen has had to step up to pick up the slack of the rotation and pick up the slack they have.

In 24.2 innings pitched the bullpen have allowed just six runs and hold a 2.19 ERA as a unit. The unit has also had two eight inning scoreless stretches on the young season. Five of the eight relievers have yet to give up an earned run and three of those five have WHIPs under 0.70.
