Strikeouts as a hitter stat
Are strikeouts or (strikeout rate) considered directly in the sim for batters?
Re: Strikeouts as a hitter stat
Yes - the issue with low-strikeout players in most PC leagues is that the pitching pool is going to bring up their K rate more than it's going to bring up the K rate of someone who already K's a lot. So in ATG for example, someone like Sammy Sosa typically sees a 3-8 percent higher rate, but Ty Cobb sees a 10-12 percent higher rate of Ks.
