The Nastiest 16 Pitching GIFs of April 2019

Trevor Bauer’s Slider vs. Domingo German’s Curveball


Bold prediction: Trevor Bauer is the most GIF-able pitcher of 2019 by the end of the season. He has too many pitches with insane movement and can get some rough hacks from hitters. Looks like Yuli Gurriel thought he had a big mistake up and in and tried to send this sick slider from Bauer into orbit. Bauer faces a Domingo German hook that has hitters throwing their bats at umpires. Seems like a problem Major League Baseball may need to address at some point.

Nick pitched at Northwestern University from 2011-14. He firmly believes the answer to every count and situation is a changeup — probably because he only topped out at 91. Nick runs the GIF Tournaments at Pitcher List. If you see a pitch that deserves recognition, let him know on Twitter @Nick_Friar. Maybe give him a follow, too? Or not. Actually, "not" might be the right answer here.
