Here is a look at distribution of bullpen workload in May:

Reliever Batters Faced BB K ERA WHIP
Ramon Ortiz 42 2 9 3.60 1.080
Carlos Monasterios 37 2 5 2.00 1.000
Jonathan Broxton 36 1 13 2.00 1.111
Ramon Troncoso 35 3 6 7.04 1.696
Ronald Belisario 31 6 8 3.86 1.286
George Sherrill 30 5 5 9.53 2.294
Hong-Chih Kuo 22 1 7 0.00 0.300
Jeff Weaver 19 1 7 1.80 0.800
Charlie Haeger 17 1 3 2.25 1.500
Totals 269 22 63 3.52 1.219

The bullpen turnaround (after a 4.81 ERA and 1.487 WHIP in April) has been a big reason why the Dodgers have an MLB-best 15-4 record this month.

More notes to follow, as John Ely takes his 84-batter walk-less streak into battle with the TigersArmando Galarraga makes his second start of the season for Detroit.
