Round 2: Aroldis Chapman’s Slider VS Blake Treinen’s Fastball

It’s no surprise to see Blake Treinen in the second round – he was facing himself after all! – but this could be the end of the road for him as he faces what was called the “Pitch of the Season” during the opening week of the year as Aroldis Chapman’s Slider got an absurd amount of lateral movement. Is Treinen’s Fastball life enough to help it see another day or is Chapman going to take another step further to defend his GIF Tournament title?
