Braves Relievers: Swing and Miss Percentages Pt.2


This post is an addition to the swing and miss post for the starters.  The idea is the same as is the layout.  I selected the relievers that were either significant to last year's team, should have an impact next year, or both.

*I tried just adding this to the first post but it kept cutting me off.  Does anyone know of a fanpost length limit?*

Notes:

-The relievers down the board had higher average wiff rates than the starters, as expected.

-Venters and Kimbrel are straight filthy and the old men still brought it last last year.

-Linebrink can still throw pretty hard, Martinez has a suprisingly good changup, and 94.9 mph sinkers from lefties just aren't fair.
