Top 5 Nastiest Pitches You Missed This Week - May 19th

1. Marcus Stroman's Fastball With Marcus Stroman, it's always been about the elite movement he gets on his heater, which has him among the best in the game in groundball rates. This pitch didn't get nearly as much love as it deserves this week, acting like a Splitter at 94mph to Tuffy Gosewisch. This ball starts off acting like a meatball Fastball down the heart of the plate before falling off a cliff where Gosewich has zero chance of making contact. Absolutely filthy. 2. Sonny Gray's Slider After a long hiatus on the DL, Sonny Gray made his fourth start of the season against the...

Top 5 Nastiest Pitches You Missed This Week - May 12th

1. Stephen Strasburg's Changeup The Orioles had their way with Stephen Strasburg over the full outing, but looking past the five earned runs were nine strikeouts as Strasburg used all of his pitches to miss plenty of bats. His Changeup was on point, like this offering to Manny Machado that started in the heart of the plate before diving into the dirt. When you take into consideration that this is 91mph - essentially an average Fastball - you'll begin to recognize how absurd the movement on this pitch is. There is really nothing you can do. 2. Carlos Martinez's Fastball This pitch from...

  1. Tyler Glasnow's Changeup There have been big expectations for Tyler Glasnow as he's made his way to the majors, but his overall command has been lacking, rendering plenty of disappointing appearances. The lanky right-hander is adjusting, though, and has begun to incorporate an improved Changeup into the mix, which was executed at its best in this start against the Reds. Watch the pitch look just like an outside heater until the last moment, falling under Zack Cozart's bat for the strikeout. 2. Rick Porcello's Fastball There's something soothing about watching a Fastball zoom straight to the catcher's mitt, freezing...

Top 5 Nastiest Pitches You Missed This Week - April 28th

  1. Alex Colome's Cutter Among the stud relievers in the majors, Alex Colome is often overlooked. Pitching for Tampa Bay can do that, but the closer is holding an impressive 1.54 ERA and 0.94 so far this season and its all on the back of his filthy Cutter. The pitch is coming in right around 90mph with vicious late bite that is making batters act just like Adam Jones - frustrated and heading back to the dugout. 2. Masahiro Tanaka's Fastball In case you missed it, Masahiro Tanaka was magnificent Thursday night against the Red Sox, giving us out first "Maddux" of the...
