Dylan Floro’s Sinker – Dylan Floro, just recently acquired by the Los Angeles Dodgers, is showing why he might be a nice addition to their suspect bullpen with this beautiful 93 mph Sinker with action.

Alex Blandino’s Knuckleball – This pitch has been all over the internet, and rightfully so. I never thought I would include a pitch from a position player on this list, but Alex Blandino’s filthy Knuckleball ain’t so bland after all.

Miles Mikolas‘ Curveball – Miles Mikolas showed the world exactly why he was an All-Star on Tuesday, dropping his absolute yo-yo on Leury Garcia for a big strike three.

Mike Clevinger’s Slider – Clev may give up runs sometimes but you can almost always count on some strikeouts, and he provided those yesterday, striking out 11 batters over six innings and fooling Adam Duvall with the late action on this slider.

Brandon Morrow’s Fastball – A little 2-2 chin music at a cool 99 miles per hour from Morrow here to earn himself a critical strikeout. No one likes heat that fast up in that area, and for good reason.

Blake Treinen’s Fastball – I mean are you kidding me with this? 99 with that kind of movement? Treinen has been absolute money all season, and it’s easy to see why. Rajai Davis is no stranger to getting clutch hits off high profile closers, but Treinen made sure he didn’t even have a chance here.

Jeremy Jeffress‘ Fastball – The Brewers reliever did Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman dirty with this 97 mph work of art—then got him swinging on a splitter two pitches later to help preserve Milwaukee’s one-run lead.
