Strikeout Percentage Leaderboard

Here are the league leaders among starting pitchers (4 starts or more) in strikeout percentage [K/(BF-IW)]. Note that National League starters generally have higher strikeout rates than American League starters because they face pitchers instead of the DH. The median for these groups of starters so far this year: AL – 14.8%; NL – 15.5%.
