Dylan Floro’s Sinker – Dylan Floro, just recently acquired by the Los Angeles Dodgers, is showing why he might be a nice addition to their suspect bullpen with this beautiful 93 mph Sinker with action.
Fernando Rodney’s Changeup – This disappearing Changeup to Matt Duffy allows Rodney to escape the bases-loaded jam and earn the save for his twenty-first of the year.
Jameson Taillon’s Curveball- Nick has discussed the changes to Jameson Taillon’s arsenal since the introduction of his Slider, but here I’d like to admire the beauty of this nasty 3-2 Curveball to get Christian Yelich waving.
Blake Snell’s Slider – Snell had a rough go yesterday getting chased after three innings, but this 91 mph back-foot Slider to Jorge Polanco reminds us that he absolutely belongs in next week’s Midsummer Classic.
Seranthony Dominguez’s Fastball – Man, this 99 mph Cutter to Chance Sisco is just gross. You can’t hit that thing with the late movement.
Max Scherzer’s Changeup – Mad Max didn’t have one of his best performances yesterday, only compiling five strikeouts and getting tagged for three runs, but this nasty Changeup is well worth a spot here.
Kyle Gibson’s Slider – This sharp Slider to strikeout Daniel Robertson is straight filth. Gibson had a nice night pitching eight innings of one-run ball with nine strikeouts to show for it.
