The Nastiest 16 Pitches GIFs of the First Half of 2019

Yu Darvish’s Slider vs. Luis Castillo’s Changeup


I’m seriously confused by this Yu Darvish pitch. It starts off looking like a fastball on the outside corner, but at the last second it just flies and turns into one of the nastiest back foot sliders of the year. But Darvish’s nasty slider isn’t a lock by any means. He has to go up against arguably the best off-speed pitch in the game—Luis Castillo’s changeup. The pitch is Castillo’s best, and when you watch this gem he threw to Tyler Naquin, it’s easy to see why.
