Trevor Bauer’s Fastball – Bauer bounced back from a disappointing start against Texas last week in a big way, pitching seven shutout innings and racking up double-digit strikeouts, such as this beautiful Two-Seamer to Jacob Stallings.

Walker Buehler’s Curveball – Chick Chicka Chicka! That’s the sound that plays at Dodger Stadium every time the Dodger rookie fans a batter. Buehler had an off-day in Philadelphia, giving up five earned runs in 4.2 innings, but this Curveball is still a work of beauty.

Blake Treinen’s Sinker- Blake Treinen is starting to become a regular on the Nastiest Pitches, and how could he not be? This 98 mph Sinker to earn the save is just stupid…and unhittable. Stupid and unhittable.

Jameson Taillon’s Curveball – Bye, Bye, Brantley. Big Game Jameson had a nice outing in this one going seven deep with only two earned runs and five strikeouts, but unfortunately, he took the L as he was outshined by Trevor Bauer.

Jack Flaherty’s Slider – Sliders such as this one from Jack Flaherty demonstrate why he is such a Pitcher List darling. He truly is the pride of the San Fernando Valley.

Tanner Roark’s Curveball – Woah, Tanner Roark had himself a day against the Brew Crew compiling eleven strikeouts through eight scoreless innings. This was easily his best start of the season, so let’s give the man some love and admire this 0-2 hook.

Matt Boyd’s Slider – This Slider from Matt Boyd has some beautiful break to it. Boyd also had one of his best outings of the season only giving up two earned runs in six innings with seven strikeouts and no walks.

Lifelong Dodger fan. Left the famous 2004 Steve Finley walk-off homer game in the ninth inning to clinch the division because his Giants fan cousin was late for work. Would've stayed, but I was nine.
