Yet his K rate was much higher in A and rookie ball. That is not normal variance. That is actual improvement.
If you actually want to point to something statistically relevant that is a difference it's his caught stealing rate.
In Billings, his K rate was 17.7%. That is 0.1% lower than where it was in Bakersfield and 0.7% lower than where it is in Pensacola. Yes, it is better than it was in Dayton. But it isn't any better than it was the year before that.
