Major League Record Book: Strikeouts in a Season

Second to last….. K’s in a major league season since the 2006 draft…

1 Brandon Beachy Woodstock ’08 2011 169
2 Chris Devenski Woodstock ’11 2016 104
3 Tyler Thornburg Winchester ’08 2016 90
4 David Carpenter Covington ’04 2013 74
5 Will Harris Staunton ’03 2016 69
6 Chris Perez Staunton ’04 2009 68
Brandon Beachy Woodstock ’08 2012 68
Will Harris Staunton ’03 2015 68
9 David Carpenter Covington ’04 2014 67
10 Chris Perez Staunton ’04 2010 61

The normal three- Chris Devenski, Will Harris, and Tyler Thornburg all had excellent 2016 seasons. Devenski, in fact, struck out more than 100- only the 2nd to do that in the last 10 years.

In case you’re curious, Brad Ziegler did not strike out more than 58 in one season, and Chad Kuhl ended 2016 with 53.
