The 28-year-old is still finding his footing in the majors, but he has a chance to be a late-bloomer thanks to his breaking ball.Fastball: Josh HaderChangeup: Devin WilliamsCurveball: Corey KnebelSlider: Brandon WoodruffOther: Adrian Houser (sinker)           Best Pitch: Josh Hader's fastballJosh Hader is the most dominant reliever in baseball, and he does it with two pitches: a lively four-seam fastball that he has thrown roughly 82 percent of the time since the start of 2019 and a wipeout slider.Both pitches have been virtually untouchable, and both would be fitting selections here:He's allowed 14 home runs with his fastball, which is the reason for the inflated ISO, but aside from that handful of mistakes, it's been overpowering with an elite 40.2 percent whiff/swing rate.Tip of the cap to Devin Williams' changeup, which would have been the pick for a lot of other teams.Fastball: Trevor MayChangeup: Kenta MaedaCurveball: Tyler DuffeySlider: Sergio RomoOther: Randy Dobnak (sinker)         Best Pitch: Tyler Duffey's curveballTyler Duffey quietly emerged as a force out of the Minnesota Twins bullpen in 2019, posting a 2.50 ERA and 1.01 WHIP with 82 strikeouts in 57.2 innings.The 29-year-old posted those numbers while throwing his knuckle curveball 45.9 percent of the time, limiting hitters to a .202 average and .141 ISO while getting more than seven inches of vertical drop. The fact that he limited left-handed hitters to a .596 OPS speaks to how effective the pitch is, regardless of who is in the batter's box.Fastball: Nick BurdiChangeup: Steven BraultCurveball: Keone KelaSlider: Joe MusgroveOther: Dovydas Neverauskas (cutter)    Best Pitch: Keone Kela's curveballKeone Kela pitched almost exclusively off a 96.6 mph fastball (53.5% usage) and a hard-biting 82.1 mph curveball (43.7% usage) last season, and his curveball accounted for 25 of his 33 strikeouts.The 14-plus mph differential between the pitches and the fact that he mixes them so evenly makes it tough to sit on any one pitch or velocity, and opposing hitters' .130 average and .093 ISO against the curveball last year speak for themselves.Fastball: Andres MunozChangeup: Chris PaddackCurveball: Drew PomeranzSlider: Dinelson LametOther: Kirby Yates (splitter)       Best Pitch: Dinelson Lamet's sliderChris Paddack's changeup, Kirby Yates' splitter and Dinelson Lamet's slider would probably all find their way onto a list of the 20 or so best pitches in baseball, and any of them would a fine choice for best pitch on the San Diego Padres roster.Since debuting in 2017, Lamet has shown some of the best swing-and-miss stuff in baseball, and his hard slider has been the driving force behind his success.He's thrown the pitch 42.6 percent of the time, slightly more frequently than his fastball. He clocks in at 94.6 mph average velocity on his fastball and gets an impressive 3.4 inches of horizontal movement.Fastball: Nate PearsonChangeup: Hyun-Jin RyuCurveball: Anthony KaySlider: Ken GilesOther: Matt Shoemaker (splitter)    Best Pitch: Hyun-Jin Ryu's changeupThere's a very good chance that Nate Pearson's high-octane fastball or wipeout slider will occupy this spot sooner than later, but for now, Hyun Jin Ryu still has the best pitch on the Toronto Blue Jays staff.He threw his changeup more than any other offering in his vast arsenal last year when he finished as the runner-up in NL Cy Young voting, turning to it 27.4 percent of the time and limiting hitters to a .194 average and .103 ISO.There's a 10 mph variance between his fastball and changeup, and his change gets a stellar 7.5 inches of horizontal break, leading to a 19.3 percent whiff rate that was tops among his pitches.Fastball: Max ScherzerChangeup: Stephen StrasburgCurveball: Austin VothSlider: Patrick CorbinOther: Will Harris (cutter)    Best Pitch: Patrick Corbin's sliderMax Scherzer might have the best repertoire of any pitcher in baseball, but in terms of singling out one pitch from the Washington Nationals roster, Patrick Corbin's slider takes top honors.The 31-year-old finished 11th in NL Cy Young voting in his first season with the Nationals after signing a six-year, $140 million contract in free agency, ranking among the NL leaders in ERA (3.25, eighth) and strikeouts (238, fourth).He threw his slider more than any other pitch (37.0 percent usage rate), and it accounted for 157 of his strikeouts.
