Every morning we review the nastiest pitches from the previous day’s games in glorious HD GIFs. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite pitch and check back this weekend to see if it will be in contention for the GIF of the First Half Contest. Did we miss your favorite pitch? Send us a tweet next time @PitcherList and we’ll GIF it up + give you a shoutout here in the article.
Dylan Covey’s Fastball- The bird flies past the screen one way and this Two-Seam Fastball flies the other. What a beautiful juxtaposition. This thing has some run to it.
Trevor Bauer’s Slider – Remember that cut on Bauer’s finger after that drone accident a couple years back? Yeah that was nasty, but this is definitely nastier. Bauer has amassed forty-eight strikeouts over his last four starts which is just silly.
Mike Soroka’s Fastball – Well, it looks like there was no DLH for Soroka yesterday as he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. This 92 mph Two-Seam Fastball has The ToddFather flailing. Welcome back, Mike.
Zack Greinke’s Curveball- This is a sloooooooooooow-motion 67 mph Uncle Charlie from Zack Greinke or as Vin Scully used to call him in his final years, “Zeinke”. Greinke was roughed up in a loss to the Pirates, but this hook is still something to appreciate.
Jhoulys Chacin’s Slider- This 81 mph Slider from Jhoulys Chacin has Anthony Rizzo completely fooled. Chacin tossed six scoreless innings against the Cubs to claim his sixth win of the season.
