Major League Record Book: Career Strikeouts

Most career strikeouts by a former Valley League pitcher… in the major leagues.

2006-2017
1 Chris Perez Staunton ’04 362
2 Will Harris Staunton ’03 296
3 Brandon Beachy Woodstock ’08 280
4 Tyler Thornburg Winchester ’08 220
5 David Carpenter Covington ’04 216
6 Chris Devenski Woodstock ’11 204
7 Chad Kuhl New Market ’12 195
8 Josh Edgin Winchester ’07 116
9 Adam Liberatore Waynesboro ’07-8 81
10 Brad Mills Harrisonburg ’05 71
11 Greg Burke New Market ’03 61

Will Harris has a chance to take the top spot on this list in 2018… with Chad Kuhl coming fast. If Kuhl starts 30 games, he will face more batters, therefore more chances for strikeouts…

19 Javier Lopez New Market ’96 358
20 Jared Burton New Market ’01 305

Chris Perez is the only name on both lists, although Will Harris will most likely move on this year. Brad Ziegler is up there, too, but he doesn’t strike out too many- he will move up to #11, but probably not #10.
