The K Team: Putting the Indians’ Staggering Strikeout Rate in Context

In the same way you probably slept through last night’s 5-3 Indians win in Seattle (and the 13 Kluber K’s that came with it), you might also be forgivably unaware that the 2015 Tribe pitching staff is well on pace to shatter the all-time Major League record for strikeouts in a season.
