The main reason that he was inefficient last night is he didn't have control of his CB and Pittsburgh rightfully laid off it. So he was left to his FB. And while no one was centering on his FB, they were fouling off a lot of pitches. I was actually surprised that he finally got the K on a FB.

Later in the inning, his CB started coming in.

Not many Milwaukee Brewers hold any records of the modern era, so it me, this is kind of a big deal!

Knebel has to be a shoe-in as our ALL STAR representative at this point.

This means a lot. He just broke a record held by Aroldis Chapman. One of the elite relievers in recent memory with incredible K numbers. It also means every single outing he is bringing elite stuff that even when he is off 33% or more of batters still struggling to even make contact with his stuff. His ERA is now under 1.00 and the Ks are a big reasons.

I mean we aren't going to print shirts and remember this for years(ok maybe the Brewers will), but it has a lot of significance for other reasons.

Most consecutive relief appearances with a strikeout to start a season, rolls right off the tongue.

Who holds the record for most K/game at any point during the season, not just from the start of the year?

Only two relievers have higher K:9 than Knebel - Betances and Kimbrel. He's arguably a better closer than Kenley Jansen for 95% less money.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

Jansen hasn't walked a batter all year. 50K in 29.2 IP. That's extraordinary.

Jansen's stats are silly. Besides what you said, his WHIP is 0.573 after 0.670 last year.

I'll be surprised if he isn't. The only others who could be are either Anderson or Thames and I doubt they will be tabbed and nobody on our roster is anywhere close vote wise.

Who (reliever pitching exclusively in relief) holds the record for most (consecutive games with a strikeout) at any point during the season, not just from the start of the year?

for a single season, bruce sutter, for the 1977 chicago cubs, with 39.

knebel can do it . . . but he may have a tough opponent coming up . . . the atlanta braves has the fewest strikeouts in the national league.

Aroldis Chapman holds the record for most consecutive games with a strikeout for a reliever. 49 consecutive games set in 2014.

knebel has two records in his sights:

--if he gets strikeouts in his next two relief appearances, he sets the single-season record.

--if he somehow achieves it over the next 12 appearances, he bests arolids chapman (who needed two seasons to get to 49).

Just looked it up and Knebel had a K in his last outing of last year as well, so he really only needs 11 more to best Chapman's overall record.

As great as Knebel has been so far this year Kimbrel & Jansen have been in an entirely different stratsosphere. Craig & Kenley are currently sitting on 0.39 & 0.43 FIPs compared to 1.81 for Corey. Only four players have ever posted a FIP below 1.00 with the previous record low in a season being 0.78 by Kimbrel in 2012. They're on the verge of breaking the model.

Yep, technically Knebel is at 39 relative to Chapman's record. Nice catch.

Yes, but Knebel is within shouting distance of those guys - heck he's within loud conversation of them. He's been elite at a micro fraction of the cost. Jansen makes $10 million and Kimbrel makes over $13 million

It is more likely that Jansen has been the best closer in baseball than it is that Knebel has been better than him.

Jansen's season is just crazy. At one point in June his FIP was negative.

corey knebel has just tied hall of famer bruce sutter's single season record of 39 consecutive games in relief with at least one strikeout per game.
