Andrew Bailey

Andrew Bailey was named AL Rookie of the Year last week, and it was well deserved. Since 2000, there have been 154 instances of a pitcher having a season with more than 80 IP and no starts.

Bailey's 2009 season is one of only 13 with an ERA under 2.00 and he places 7th on the list. There were only 6 pitchers to do that this season and he was in a class by himself.

ERA: 80+ IP, 0 Starts
1.84 - Andrew Bailey (A's)
2.72 - Ramon Troncoso (Dodgers)
2.90 - Todd Coffey (Phillies)
3.26 - Mark Lowe (Mariners)
3.40 - Jeff Fulchino (Astros)
4.90 - Brian Bass (Orioles)
