Tim Wakefield through the years
On May 12, 2010, Wakefield became the fourth active pitcher to earn 2,000 strikeouts. The other pitchers reaching that milestone are Jamie Moyer of the Phillies, and Andy Pettitte and Javier Vazquez of the Yankees.
"I'm very proud of that," Wakefield said after the loss to the Blue Jays. "It's a tribute to longevity and I feel very blessed I've been able to wear this uniform for a long time and I've been able to accomplish 2,000 strikeouts."
