Strikeout-rate and Infield Flies

The new Wade Davis has been pretty crappy. Earlier in the year he was at least balling with infield flies to offset some of his loss in Ks. In talking with RJ about it, I decided to put together a table showing strikeout rate and infield fly rate to see how Davis stacked up against his teammates in these two sure-out catgories. With out much fanfare, here it is:

As you can see Shields and Price have (unsurprisingly) been the best of the rotation. Cruz and Peralta are somewhat of a surprise to me in the bullpen, and Helly's been quite good at getting infield flies. I wonder if he has some trick up his sleeve that may really benefit him if he can get his strikeout rate more in line with his MiLB numbers. And Sonny, SMH.
