That's a tough question to answer because there is really no 'average MLB pitcher' stats. Some pitchers, like the starter, might pitch 6 or 7 innings in a game while a reliever may come in and only pitch to 1 batter. The chances are that the average starter will have more strikeouts than the average reliever. However, it is pretty easy to say how many strikeouts are in the average MLB game. In the National League for 2009, there were 1295 games played and 18205 strikeouts recorded. This averages out to 14 strikeouts per National League game. In the American League for 2009, there were 1135 games played and 15386 strikeouts recorded. This averages out to 13.6 strikeouts per American League game.
In 2009, Brian Fuentes of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim led the American League with 48 saves.
Through games played on July 21, that is the Texas Rangers with 734 strikeouts. Second is the Tampa Bay Rays with 728 strikeouts and third is the Cleveland Indians with 720.
Ryan Howard holds the record for most strikeouts for a batter in a World Series with 13 in 2009. Bob Gibson holds the record for most strikeouts for a pitcher with 35 in 1968.
