Sporcle Friday: M’s relievers with 50+ SO in a season

New, comments

Which M's relievers have recorded the most punchouts in a single season?

Thanks to Edwin Diaz's sizzling strikeout rate and his recent ascension to the mystical role of CLOSER, it seems like everyone and their little league coach has been talking about the M's talented rookie. This ~national attention has been a lot of fun and Diaz's success has helped buoy the spirits of many a Mariners fan. Thank you, Edwin.

Speaking of relievers and strikeouts... this week's Sporlce quiz asks you try and name every M's reliever who managed 50 or more strikeouts in a single season. This is a feat that has been accomplished 93 times by 55 different players. That's a lot of correct answers! In an attempt to help everyone out, I've bumped up the time limit for this quiz quite a bit. If you're patient and keep plugging away, I have a feeling that many of you will do pretty well. Good luck!
