The #1 seed for this tournament belongs to Jose Berrios and this incredible Curveball, which blew our minds as it bent like a wiffle ball to pin the inside corner to, once again, Caleb JosephThe movement on this pitch is simply unreal and its location to nip the plate is more satisfying than it has any right to be. However, Jharel Cotton might have something to say about this Berrios pitch, as he threw a Changeup to Brandon Moss with fade that is rarely seen. Watch the pitch travel from the middle of the plate to no-man’s-land with action that is reserved nearly exclusive for left-handers. This isn’t as easy of a choice as you would have thought.
