Jose Taveras led the South Atlantic League in strikeouts in 2016, and other BlueClaws pitchers also made their mark this season. Looking back, we've got some numbers to compare 'Claws pitchers to others in the SAL.

We've broken down various stats categories as compared to league averages and give you a look at members of the Lakewood pitching staff who finished among the league leaders. To qualify to be among the league leaders in stats categories such as ERA and WHIP, pitchers in the South Atlantic League had to have at least 112 innings pitched for a starter or 56 innings pitched as a reliever.

Our list shows only pitchers who threw a minimum of 30 innings for Lakewood. Stats in bold indicate that the pitcher was better than the league averages in that category. A category with a ( - ) in it means that the pitcher didn't allow any occurrences of that category.

*URA is unearned run average, a measurement of how a team's defense affected a particular pitcher throughout the season. If the URA is bold, the pitcher was affected less by his team's defense than the average pitcher in the SAL.
