Jeff Sullivan took a broad look at the projected strikeout rates for MLB teams, combining Steamer and ZiPS projections. Unsurprisingly, the Rays are set to be one of the highest strikeout teams.

The Rays come in projected 4th highest, missing out on the medal stand behind just White Sox, Twins, and Brewers.

However, for those hopeful in some more contact, the combined projection also has the Rays with the 4th best Change in K%, dropping by around 2%.

What does this mean? Probably not much (by Sullivan’s own admission), but I still find it interesting to look at projections.
