Not that big of a difference compared to Volquez's 24 k's in 22.2 innings. At least not enough to point out that he's a "K machine" and the others don't get mentioned at all.
Yes, but Volquez's last full season, he had 206 in 196. The others you mentioned are not averaging numbers like that. I think he's consistent with being a K machine. It's the other stats that are concerning...like the HRs (not in line with his career norm) and the BBs, which he has always struggled with.
