Dylan Bundy’s Fastball – I absolutely adore Fastballs painted right along the black and this one from Bundy fits the bill, coming in at 95mph and fanning Chris CarterThe bonus tail at the end of it to ensure it hits the plate is icing on the cake.

Jordan Montgomery’s Changeup – Montogmery has flashed strikeout upside through his rookie campaign and sent Manny Machado into a frenzy with this sweet Changeup that fell off the outside corner.

Alex Colome’s Slider – Colome is quietly having an excellent season as the Rays’ closer, with a sparkling 1.78 ERA and already holding 14 saves to his name. The impetus for his success a wicked Slider that touches 90mph and a boatload of movement. He ended Monday’s game with the pitch, burying it low in the zone to get Joey Gallo fishing.

Tanner Roark’s Curveball – There were more…exciting events that stole the show for this game, but let’s not forget this excellent pitch from Roark that hit struck out Denard Span despite hitting him in the foot. Yes, it’s the literal definition of a back-foot breaking ball.

Brad Brach’s Changeup – Filling in for Zach Britton is no easy task, but Brach looked like a stud as he shut the door on the Yankees yesterday. His final pitch was this beautiful Changeup to Didi Gregorious that featured gorgeous tumbling action with its Split-Change grip. (Thanks to Redditor Death215 for the tip!)

Andrew Miller’s Slider – It’s expected for Miller to be all kinds of dominant in the Cleveland pen and he isn’t one to disappoint. He struck out the side yesterday and his Slider, of course, was all kinds of filthy. Just look at the movement here to fan Chad Pinder.

Brad Peacock’s Curveball – For the second start in a row, Peacock fanned eight batters and is doing so on the back of a vicious Curveball that induces plenty of horrible swings. Just look at this flail from Byron Buxton on a pitch that skips in the dirt after looking like a pitch right down Broadway.
