Joaquin Benoit has 9 saves, 51 strikeouts, 12 walks and a 1.04 WHIP in 40.1 innings this season out of the Detroit Tigers’ bullpen. Joaquin Benoit has earned the right to dance in the bullpen if the mood strikes him. During the Tigers’ 6-2 win over the White Sox on Tuesday night, the mood struck Benoit. So he danced. Benoit then went in the game and finished after Al Alburquerque gave up 2 runs to start the inning.
(Update: Alburquerque walked two and was charged with both runs, but the runs scored with Benoit on the mound. Still, that dance.)
