Jorge Lopez’s Two-Seam Fastball vs. Jeurys Familia’s Sinker
Jorge Lopez actually used a whiffle ball on the offering below. That hasn’t been officially reported, but that’s the only way to explain the amount of break on this heater. But Lopez drew the short straw in the first round. He goes against a 96-mile-per-hour sinker from Jeurys Familia. Believe it or not, pitches can come in that hot and still have depth. That didn’t seem possible five years ago.
