 Strikeout - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In baseball, a strikeout or strike out (denoted by K, K-S, or SO) occurs when the batter receives three strikes during his time at bat.
In scoring, a strikeout is recorded as a backward-facing K. Some scorers record strikeouts where the batter didn't swing at the last pitch with a backwards-facing K, also recorded as K-C.
The use of "K" for a strikeout was invented by Henry Chadwick, a newspaper journalist.

 Fourth Outfielder: The Strikeout, TTO, and why Dodgers fans should be thinking about them - Part I   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The considerable advantage in OPS was expected, as strikeouts and power have long been known to have a high correlation plus there is a bit of self selection since home runs are part of what makes someone a TTO hitter.
The difference between a strikeout and any other type of out isn't overwhelming at all (3/100ths of a run or so, according to Click, as you point out), but it is undisputable.
