The Twins' Rotation: Historically Inept at Striking out Hitters

At present, the Twins' rotation ranks last in the majors in strikeout rate. That's not especially notable in and of itself, as someone has to rank last in any given category. But the utter inability of Minnesota starters to miss bats in indeed notable. For instance, the Twins' rotation this season has a K/9 mark of 4.32, and the next worst figure belongs to the Rockies, whose starters check in at 5.86. That's quite a gap between last and next-to-last, even after you account for the DH factor (which is offset somewhat by the Rockies' mile-above-sea-level home park).
