Put-Away Pitchers

Top 15 Pitchers with Two Strikes by K%

Chicago White Sox closer Sergio Santos has been deadly in two strike counts. With a 65.0% K-rate, he's the best put away pitcher so far in 2011. In 103 plate appearances with two strikes, Santos has yielded only 8 hits and 10 walks while striking out 67 batters.

While Kameron Loe's 41.5% K-rate in two strike counts ranks only 97th among qualified pitchers, his .102 weighted on base average is tops in all of baseball. He's given up just 8 base hits with two strikes, none for extra bases. One reason for the lack of opposing power has been his ability to keep the ball out of the air. With two strikes, Loe has given up all of 6 fly balls out of 57 balls put in play, compared to 41 grounders.
