Strikeout Trends: 2000-2014

K/9 (Relievers)
2000: 7.16
2004: 7.31
2008: 7.53
2010: 7.85
2011: 7.90
2012: 8.40
2013: 8.31
2014: 8.47

K/9 (Starters)
2000: 6.21
2004: 6.22
2008: 6.44
2010: 6.76
2011: 6.74
2012: 7.12
2013: 7.18
2014: 7.36

We have enough data by now about 2014 to say that strikeouts trends are continuing as they have for the past few years.  The enormous jump in relievers' strikeouts from 2011 to 2012 is holding steady and strikeouts among starters is increasing.  This probably can't continue forever before there is an adjustment back towards the hitters, but it looks like it will continue like this for a while.
