Orioles' Richard Bleier: Success coming without strikeouts
1 min read
Bleier is posting an impressive ERA of 1.69 but only has 15 strikeouts in 37.1 innings this season.
With a fastball that averages 88.7 mph, Bleier isn't capable of blowing by hitters and instead makes his living on well-placed pitches and weak contact. While that's great for him and for the Orioles, the lack of strikeouts and his role in the middle innings greatly limit his fantasy appeal.
