Fantasy Baseball: Top 20 Pitchers Based on K/100 Pitches

I posted an article on SB Nation's fantasy page offering fantasy owners a new metric to rank starting pitcher based on strikeouts per 100 pitches. I stumbled upon this metric over at Rich Lederer's site-The Baseball Analysts.

Here is an excerpt from my article:

Here is a quote from his article:

As detailed in Strikeout Proficiency (Part Two), K/P has the highest correlation in each of the five run measures (ERA, R/G, ERC, FIP, and DIPS). K/BF has the second-highest correlation and K/IP has the lowest correlation. In any other words, K/P > K/BF > K/IP.

Head on over to SB Nation's fantasy page to check out the rankings.
