Strikeout rate is the combination of selectivity and ability to put the bat on the ball. Maybe a little counter-intuitively being very selective usually makes your strikeout rate go up, so the K rate vs selectivity curve (often?) has a minimum in the middle. Willie Keeler struck out as few as 2-3 times in a full season, but his walk numbers would slide perfectly into Adam Jones' career. Because if you're taking borderline pitches you're striking out a lot more than that.
My thoughts as we get nearer to draft day--
I want Torkelson or Martin, being virtually split on who I favor. I'd be very happy to get either, though the odds greatly favor the Tigers taking Tork.
The rumors/chatter about Elias going underslot like he did in 2012 with Carlos Correa and Lance McCullers, have me concerned, yet not as adamantly against it as I've been.
