Plenty have focused on the absurdity that is Felipe Rivero’s arsenal, which includes a triple digit heater and a 90mph Changeup, but it’s his vicious Slider that was voted here today as it whipped back to the inside corner to steal a strikeout. Meanwhile, Jakob Junis took a different approach, using his Slider’s harsh movement to induce a terrible swing from Eduardo Escobar, forcing the infielder to take a knee. Which do you prefer? A sneaky strike or a deceptive whiff?
