Brandon Bielak

The majority (14) of Bielak’s 26 relief appearances were of the long variety and on thirteen of those occasions he entered before the sixth inning, resulting in a leverage index of 0.7.  Bielak was only used on consecutive days twice and allowed 4-of-12 inherited runners to score.

Bielak was one for two in save opportunities (both regular) and had only 12 clean appearances out of his 26 total relief opportunities.  With the departure of Kendall Graveman (1.8 leverage index) and Brooks Raley (1.1), Bielak could be in for higher leverage situations in 2022.
