The Nastiest 16 Pitching GIFs of April 2019 — Semi-Finals
Yu Darvish knocked off Pitcher List poster boy Chaz Roe last round, but he has to take on the pitching GIF world’s new sensation: Luis Castillo. Darvish’s slide-piece might’ve had more moves than Zac Efron in, well . . . he cuts up a rug in pretty much anything he’s in. Point is, Darvish’s slider has some moves. Turns out, so does Eric Hosmer—at least when pressured into it. The San Diego Padres star first baseman breaks out the buckle and twist at the sight of Castillo’s 96-mph fuzz.
