Every day we bring you the nastiest pitches of the previous night’s games, and there are a bunch to sift through for our weekly Nastiest Pitch series to determine which pitches are the nastiest of the week. We’ve since narrowed it down to sixteen of the very best pitches from the previous month, and it’s up to you to determine which pitch will be crowned the Nastiest Pitch of May.
Vote for one pitch in each matchup, and be sure to come back tomorrow to vote in the next round. Every vote counts, and your opinion matters!
5/14 – José Alvarado’s Sinker (2)
5/30 – Kevin Gausman’s Splitter (1)
Whoops! This should have been the Filthy Four matchup, while Blake Treinen and Freddy Peralta’s two sliders should have faced off for the right to be here. My bad. Both José Alvarado and Kevin Gausman took down their opponents with relative ease and would have had the two most votes regardless, so this matchup of disgusting pitches really should be a final round matchup anyway. This is going to be a tight one, fought tooth and nail until the very end. Cast your vote and check out Twitter tomorrow for the winner!
