Brought to you in honor of Strikeout for Troops.

 

Some reasonably available players to assist you in the Strikeouts category.  Realize that some of these will come with high ERAs & WHIPs because if a Pitcher has low numbers in those categories and a good K total, they’re already spoken for.
.
Felipe Paulino, Kansas City Royals:  Paulino is 1-2 with a 4.71 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in his past three starts, but he has racked up 24 strikeouts in 21 innings (10.3 K/9).

.
Jake Peavy, Chicago White Sox: He’s less than reasonable available, but at 55 percent Yahoo! ownership (69.7 percent for ESPN leagues) he could be floating in your waiver pool.
