Minor League Record Book: Strikeouts in a Season

Here is the third of four pitching categories- most strikeouts in a minor league season!

1 Drew Granier Harrisonburg ’09-10 2012 167
2 Tyler Thornburg Winchester ’08 2011 160
3 Brad Mills Harrisonburg ’05 2008 159
4 Robert Gilliam Luray ’07 2011 156
5 Drew Granier Harrisonburg ’09-10 2013 153
6 Mike Ballard Staunton ’04 2011 150
7 Brandon Beachy Woodstock ’08 2010 148
8 Cole McCurry New Market ’05 2009 145
9 Drew Rucinski Luray ’09-10 2014 140
10 Brandon Dickson New Market ’06 2010 137

Fascinating list. Granier is here twice- 2012 and 2013. Thornburg, Mills, Beachy, Rucinski and Dickson have all played in the major leagues. Ballard and McCurry are out of pro ball, while Gilliam has been fighting injury issues the last couple of years.

Rucinski is the newest member of the list- 140 strikeouts in the same year that he makes his major league debut- what a season!
