2016 Yankees Statistical Predictions: The Bullpen

The New York Yankees bullpen is expected to be one of the strongest units in Major League history. Not only will the pen be relied upon heavily by manager Joe Girardi but it may be the Yankees bridge to a whole lot of victories, especially if the Yankees starters cannot give the team consistent innings and quality starts. Just how good is the bullpen going to be though and how much better can it be than the 2015 version? The 2015 version of Justin Wilson, Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller were almost perfect after six innings, even better after seven innings and practically perfect after eight innings. Can they be better in 2016 with Wilson now wearing a Detroit Tigers uniform and Aroldis Chapman wearing the pinstripes?

Dellin Betances
80 games, 6-1 record, 1.43 ERA, 5 saves, 119 K's

Andrew Miller
70 Games, 4-2 record, 1.96 ERA, 11 saves, 101 K's

Aroldis Chapman w/o suspension
69 games, 2-2 record, 1.50 ERA, 40 saves, 111 K's

Aroldis Chapman w/ suspension
50 games, 2-2 record, 1.67 ERA, 30 saves, 89 K's

Chasen Shreve
50 games, 4-6 record, 3.03 ERA

Bryan Mitchell
