Every morning, the We Love Baseball crew reviews the Nastiest Pitches from the previous day’s games in glorious high-definition GIFs. We want to bring you the highest caliber of nastiness possible, so if you see a nasty pitch, please tell us about it. You can tweet @PitcherList to let us know, and we’ll give you a shout-out here in the article if your tip makes the cut.
As a bonus for PL+ members, let us know about a pitch on the PL+ Discord in the Nasty Pitches Channel, and if your suggestion is included the next day, you’ll be entered into a weekly drawing for a free T-shirt!
Charlie Morton’s Curveball
Uncle Charlie was rocking it on Saturday as he struck out 12 on the day in a win against Pittsburgh. His 41.2% CSW was fantastic and was helped by a whopping 47.2% CSW on the curveball alone.
Hunter Greene’s Fastball
Hunter Greene may have missed his spot here, but it’s still a nasty piece of triple digit cheese for a called third strike.
Jhoan Duran’s Splitter
I want to highlight this filthy two pitch sequence by Jhoan Duran to Harold Ramirez. First, Duran threw his notorious splinker up and in at 96 MPH for a whiff. This pitch is filthy enough as it is.
Jhoan Duran’s Curveball
Duran then follows it up with a disgusting curveball out of the zone and Ramirez looks silly trying to swing at it.
Devin Williams‘ Changeup
Devin Williams is the king of the nasty changeup. This one is pedestrian by his standards, but it’s still one of the ten nastiest pitches of the day.
Michael Rucker’s Changeup
Camilo Doval’s Slider
J.B. Wendelken’s Changeup
J.B. Wendelken got in on the action yesterday, throwing this changeup that fluttered out of the zone for a nasty whiff.
Kyle Crick’s Slider
