The Nastiest Pitches From June: Terrific Two

And then there were two...

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 June.

Shane McClanahan’s sinker took the crown in April. Last month it was Kevin Gausman’s filthy splitter that took the cake. Which pitch will join them in the Nastiest Pitch of the Month crowd?

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!

José Urquidy’s Changeup (1)






Blake Treinen’s Slider (2)




Both of these pitches deserve to be here, and the fact that they both have ridiculous movement but to different sides of the plate should highlight just how difficult it is to be a major league hitter. What Blake Treinen and José Urquidy are able to do with a baseball is nothing but dark magic, and it’s unfair. Best of luck to both players!

Results will be announced on Twitter tomorrow!

    ah, I missed the final 4. I saw the last 8 yesterday and I was all ready to vote the curveballs. I can’t believe Rich Hill didn’t make it here
