With just four pitches remaining, three are heaters are taking the spotlight, each with a ton of movement while coming with different approaches. Blake Treinen’s Fastball gets its dazzle from the smoke it leaves behind at 99mph while also featuring wild movement that miraculously nips the inside the corner. Meanwhile, Aaron Nola doesn’t get the same velocity on his Two-Seamer at a “pedestrian” 93mph, but makes up the difference in precisely spotting the pitch on the outside corner after looking out of his hand to miss the plate by a foot. Does brash power or skilled command make it to the final round?
