Round 2: Steven Wright vs. Carlos Martinez

Steven Wright may not be the first name that crosses when thinking of Knuckleballs, but he threw the best one of the season against Didi Gregorious in August. However, Carlos Martinez is not going to go down without a fight, firing 96 MPH with incredible late bend to fan Chris Johnson. There’s no wrong answer here, and it will only get tougher as we enter the semi-finals tomorrow.
