Strikeouts in 2014



# of teams with 7.5+ K/9 in May
2006: 3
2007: 1
2008: 6
2009: 7
2010: 8
2011: 7
2012: 14
2013: 13
2014: 16

After a monster April for strikeouts (7.93 K/9 in April 2014 vs. 7.68 in April of 2013), strikeouts have leveled off and are identical to May of 2013 (7.54).  The number of teams, though, that are maintaining a high rate is still going up.  The strikeout numbers might not shoot up as much as they have the last few years, but they are still mind-blowing when compared to just a few years ago.
