Has anyone noticed that, for all of his horrific outings, Jorge Julio is averaging 18 STRIKEOUTS PER NINE INNINGS?

He may have meltdowns, give up gopher balls, and often look like a frightened deer in headlights, but the fact remains that this guy has some seriously scary stuff. I’m not sure that anyone has ever averaged 2 Ks per inning over the course of a full year, and I doubt he can keep this up, but the stat is a glaring statement about this guy’s potential.
