Votto and Lewis strike out quite a bit. 100 times a season is quite a bit. Of course Votto walks a ton, and deap counts mean increased strike outs. Cozart strikes out without the benefit of a lot of walks.
Eh, Cozart walks about half as often as he strikes out.
And 17% is about average. In 2010 there were 205 players with at least 400 PA in the Majors. The players at #102 and #103 on the strikeout % list struck out 16.2% of the time.
