10 unbreakable Texas Rangers records- Strikeouts by a pitcher
The strikeout king, Nolan Ryan, had a MLB record 5,714 strikeouts during a 27 year career. In 1973, while pitching for the California Angels, Ryan had a remarkable 383 strikeouts. Ryan had over 300 strikeouts on six occasions (1972-1974, 1976-1977, 1989), and led the AL in strikeouts nine times and the NL twice. In 1989, Ryan recorded 301 strikeouts while pitching for Texas. Not only is this a Rangers record, the closest any pitcher has come to this record occurred in 2013 when Yu Darvish had 277. Ryan remains one of the best pitchers in Texas Rangers history, as well.
