The Nastiest Pitching GIFs of the Third Quarter 2018

To kick things off, we’re featuring a pair of pitchers who may find themselves squaring off again in October. Masahiro Tanaka earned our #1 Fastball slot with this mind-bending fastball that curled over the zone with exagerrated horizontal movement. He faces another two-seam in Corey Kluber’s heater, which starts right off the plate before falling comfortably into the zone. Both are clear eye-candy, but we’ll only be seeing one in Round 2.
