The Nastiest Pitching GIFs of the Third Quarter 2018

It was an early exit for Jordan Hicks’ 100+ mph heater last time out, but he’s back again, this time with a perfectly command pitch to steal a strike at a blistering 103mph. It would look like an easy stroll to Round 2 if it not for Jeremy Jeffress displaying wicked late movement on a two-seamer of his own, cruising for the outside edge before darting off the plate. It’s hard to choose between two elegant heaters, does the whiff or the paint get your vote?
