What's the difference for a pitcher between the contact rate in plate discipline and the swinging strike rate?

+1 vote
What I'm saying is if a pitcher's contact rate against is, say, 83% shouldn't his swinging strike rate be 17%? Thanks

They won't add up to 100 because they're using different denominators.

Contact% = contact/swings

SwStr% = swing and miss/ total pitches
