Brandon Morrow’s Fastball vs. Jose Alvarado’s Fastball

Brandon Morrow's Fastball vs. Jose Alvarado's Fastball.

Here we have two pitches that ended well off the plate but made hitters look silly. It’s rare to see a fastball get chased on a ball in the dirt, yet Brandon Morrow induced just that with a blazing 98mph fastball, blowing our minds. At the same time, the late life on this Jose Alvarado rocket is as sexy as they come, finding its way under Rafael Devers‘ bat for the whiff. You can’t go wrong here, but only one pitch will see another day.
