Astros bullpen WHIP+: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
7 of 10
Cristian Javier – 102
The tale of two roles. Cristian Javier was good as a starter, registering a 79 WHIP+, but inconsistent as a reliever, where he tallied a 3.93 ERA, still didn’t give up many hits, but walked almost 5.5 batters per nine innings and gave up nine home runs in 52.2 innings.
Javier did strand 81.4% of runners so there’s that, but given the numbers in relief and Javier’s numbers as a starter it seems he’s more suited as a starter.
