Graph of the Day: College Pitcher Strikeout Rates


Inspired by Matthew Carruth's FanGraphs post. I used The Baseball Cube's college data to generate total batters faced, then came up with the strikeout rate. This shows a few things:

  • College strikeout rates are inflated. Pedro Martinez had a 38 K% in 1999. Four players above either come close, match, or exceed that total.
  • How poor does the selection of Greg Reynolds look in retrospect?
  • Stephen Strasburg is decent.
