A list of Major League pitchers with 3000 or more career strikeouts. For a pitcher to get to this milestone, he will have to average 150 strikeouts for 20 years which means he will have to be a Starting Pitcher as well as being a strikeout pitcher. He will also need to have the ability to pitch deeper into games and be a front-line starter.
