Send us a tweet next time @ThePitcherList and we’ll GIF it up + give you a shoutout here in the article.
David Price‘s Changeup – Price was outdueled by Salazar last night, but he still made some fantastic pitches through the game. Just watch how badly Jerry Sands misses this slow pitch off the plate.
Danny Salazar’s Changeup – Salazar went into Toronto having just allowed a trio of Home Runs in his previous start and struck out 10 batters across seven innings for the Win. This Changeup he threw to Josh Donaldson to end the third inning was as pretty as they come. (Thanks to Reddit user bengalmike17 for the tip!)
Bartolo Colon’s Fastball – The Big Apple had himself a day in Citi Field as he shutout the visiting Phillies through eight innings of work. He started off strong by getting Odubel Herrera with this Fastball that never stops riding off the plate.
Dallas Keuchel’s Changeup – It can be tough at times to properly see the break of left-handed pitchers, but this Changeup breaks so hard off the plate that we can all appreciate its filth.
Robbie Ray’s Curveball – Ray had a tough matchup inside Coors field and left with eight strikeouts to his name. Here he fanned Nick Hundley on a sweet hook that falls into the dirt.
