Part of today’s Immaculate Grid challenge is to come up with players with 200+ strikeout seasons for specific teams.
Since there is a good chance we’ll see this category in the future on the grid, I went ahead and put together a table of pitchers with 200+ strikeout seasons organized by team. My goal is to have at least 3 different players for each team so you always have options to play around with on the grid.
You can use this as a ‘study sheet’ if you’re a purist or you can use it to help you if you get completely stuck on a box (some might call that cheating but we won’t tell).
NOTE: I’ve gone through each season back to 2018 to pull all the 200+ strikeout seasons.

*These players have previously been the most popular answer for this team in this category.
To use a player in a square, they must have a season with 200+ strikeouts in that particular team’s uniform.
You cannot just use any player that has thrown 200+ strikeouts and then pick any team they have played for.
