It’s the one “grab bag” matchup as Steven Wright takes on Taijuan Walker. If you’re into Knuckleballs, this is as good as they come. Wright’s pitch doesn’t make up its mind until the very last moment, when it breaks sharply over the inside corner. If you can’t catch it, you can’t hit it. On the flip side, Walker won the second GIF of the Week competition of the season with a Splitter that breaks an absolute ton. This pitch started in the heart of the plate and ended up behind Danny Valencia’s back foot. Incredible.
