Carlos Rodón throws a lot of pitches. He throws a lot of pitches because he strikes a lot of guys out. Last night he threw 110 pitches in six innings and struck out 12 guys. He allowed six hits and two walks and two of those runners scored but the Giants scored more and won the game. FanGraphs lists Kevin Gausman as the ML leader in WAR for pitchers (2.2). Rodón is right behind him (1.7) and leads baseball in strikeouts (53). I should mention that Gausman has walked only one batter in his 6 starts (38 IP, 147 TBF).
