Today’s Sports Stat: February 21, 2018
If you follow baseball, specifically, Major League Baseball, you know that complete games are a dying stat in the game. Consider this: Last year there were three teams, Atlanta, the White Sox and Tampa Bay, that did not have one single complete game by their pitching staff.
Since the 2010 season, there have been 13 teams that went a whole season without a complete game; there were three teams last season, four in 2016, three in 2015, two in 2012, and one team in 2011.
Since the 2010 campaign, the Philadelphia Phillies have the most complete games with 51 in those eight seasons. At the bottom end of this list are the Milwaukee Brewers with only 13 complete games since 2010.
Here are the six teams with 20 or fewer total complete games by their pitching staffs from 2010-17.
20-Atlanta, Colorado, Pittsburgh
