Madison Bumgarner Becomes a Strikeout Pitcher

Madison Bumgarner is turning into quite the strikeout machine. Last season he had a K/9 of just 6.97 which isn't  bad especially considering that he matched it up with a 2.11BB/9  but this season he has been even better.

This season he has increased the strikeouts per inning by 1.5 while lowering his already low walk rate. His current numbers sit at 8.42 K/9 and 2.08 BB/9. This is the type of pitcher that he showed when he was in the low minors, over powering stuff with plus control.

Here are some fun graphs to start off your Tuesday morning showing MadBum's strikeout growth.

The Giants may not make the playoffs (yes I am still going to say may until it is mathematically impossible, sometimes epic meltdowns happen) but at least we get to watch some pretty awesome pitching.
