It seems like Carlos Pérez is striking out a lot lately, and relative to his standards, he is.

With a K on his line against Durham on Friday, Pérez has struck out in eight of his last 10 games, which is noteworthy when you start the year avoiding whiffs in 24 of 25 games.

That said, Pérez has struck out no more than once in any game this season, so he’s still running an impressive K rate on the season. It just means he’s dropped from first to third in leading all of Minor League Baseball in K rate (6.5 percent).

The good news? Of the 10 players with the lowest K rates in the minors, Pérez has by far the highest ISO.

Isolated Power (ISO)

ISO measures the raw power of a hitter by taking only extra-base hits — and the type of extra-base hit — into account.

For example, a player who goes 1-for-5 with a double has an ISO of .200. A player who goes 2-for-5 with a single and a double has a higher batting average than the first player, but the same ISO of .200.

The formula

(1x2B + 2x3B + 3xHR) / At-bats OR Slugging percentage – Batting average
