More on Strikeouts in 2014


15+ K/9, 25 + IP (since 1900)
2012 Craig Kimbrel 16.66
2011 Kenley Jansen 16.10
2010 Carlos Marmol 15.99
2013 Aroldis Chapman 15.83
2012 Aroldis Chapman 15.32

Until 2010, there had never been a pitcher that had more than 25 innings and averaged more than 15 strikeouts per nine innings.  Since then, it has happened 5 times in 4 seasons.  Last year, Kimbrel's strikeout rate went down (13.3), while Marmol and Jansen don't seem to be threats to repeat either.  It wouldn't be a surprise, though, to see several pitchers with 15+ SO/9 in 2014 considering the huge increase in strikeouts that we've seen recently.
