So, who are guys with 50 or more K's who are averaging more than a K per inning? Thought you'd NEVER ask.
Ben Griset: A nice 4-2, 1.81, season with 51 Ks in 49 IP.
Craig Missigman: a surprising (to me) name on the list, with 62 Ks in 59 IP.
Tyler Bashlor: nice return from injuries: 3-1, 2.47 record and 62 Ks in 47 IP. Hard thrower.
Nabil Crismat: recently promoted to join the Fireflies, he tossed a dominant 10 strikeout start the other day. 44 IP, 52 Ks, fine ERA - but he is a Met, so he is 0-2. He is a member of the Baldonado Fan Club….winners who don't win.
Joe Shaw: 123 Ks in 126 IP is not more than 1 an inning, but it is darned close and the highest K total of any Mets minor leaguer this year, so I gladly mention Mr. Shaw here.
Brooklyn A Ball:
Tom Szapucki: a lefty sensation that I mention often, and when you've struck out 86 in 52 innings, why be dumb and not mention him is how I figure it. Future ace.
Harol Gonzalez: Little Pedro is 5-1, 1.57, with 74 Ks in 63 innings. Totally lights out lately. Lethal, actually.
Joe Zanghi - 34 Ks in 22 IP for Brooklyn, and a nice sub 2-00 ERA also in 16 relief outings.
A few Kingsport guys doing OK in the K department too.
Traded strikeout machines include Dario Alvarez, Akeel Morris, the now-healed Jack Leathersich, and fireballing Brad Wieck. Look them up at your leisure.
