Today I am going to cover some of the players who accomplished the rare feat of finishing the 2019 MLB season with a Walk to Strikeout Ratio (BB/K) greater than or equal to 1. If you have read my blog before, you know this has been the primary reoccurring theme of my blog. If you have not (I assume that is most of you), welcome! I have written about this topic previously on the 2018 season, the 2017 season, and even created a Tableau dashboard to cover the history of this feat in all MLB seasons. I became fascinated with this topic when I started writing online back in the beginning of 2018 as the way the modern game is going, there has been less of an emphasis on plate discipline.

I have already written about the players with walk to strikeout ratios (BB/K) greater than or equal to 1.00 for 2017 and relatively (depending on your definition of the word) recently created a dashboard showing the MLB history of this feat so I guess it only make sense for me to write a post about who has joined this club following the 2018 season. I really did not intend for this to be a primary topic I would be covering on this blog, but I feel like it is my job at this point to continue to keep you updated on this subject. I really do not want to let all six (approximate guess) of my readers down. That said, I do find the topic interesting (or else I would not be doing this) as players with great plate discipline are a rare occurrence in today’s game and it might help me uncover some underrated players in my deeper fantasy leagues. The following post will highlight all the qualified batters who have been added as well as address the unqualified batters added who I deem interesting enough to write about.
