200 Strike Outs by batters in 2018: new records? Monday, June 25, 2018

Not even half way through the 2018 season and four batters already have over 100 Strike Outs (SO), which means that each could reach 200 SO...

200 SO have been reached ten times, all since 2008 when Mark Reynolds led the way by doing it with Arizona in 2008, 2009, 2010. In 2011 with Baltimore Reynolds led the AL with 196 SO.

2016 was the only season in which two batters had 200 SO, one in each league: Chris Davis and Chris Carter.

But in 2018 there could be at least four batters with 200 SO, double the previous high. All are in the AL but Paul Goldschmidt of Arizona has 92 and could reach 200 SO.

Most amazingly, one team could have two 200 SO batters: the New York Yankees with Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton.
