The Nastiest 32 Pitching GIFs of 2018

Several pitchers have multiple pitches in the Nastiest Pitching GIFs of 2018 Tournament. Blake Treinen is the only one who has two fastballs and two off-speed pitches. In this battle of fastballs, you have one MPH separating the two pitches—the No. 1 to Chase d’Arnaud in San Francisco coming in a little hotter at 99. The one to d’Arnaud had more sink, a little less run and was a bit faster, the one to Kevin Pillar, No. 2, still had decent sink, but ran in so hard on Toronto’s Gold Glove center fielder it’s a surprise he didn’t corkscrew himself into the ground.

Nick Friar

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.
