Summary

103mph đŸ”„ <a href="https://t.co/22Eatp0NzC">pic.twitter.com/22Eatp0NzC</a>Even Helsley was surprised that he hit 103 mph on that pitch to Ketel Marte, as he told Katie Woo of The Athletic: "I did look up when I struck him out. The 72 fastballs he's thrown have yielded zero hits in 16 at-bats, with 11 strikeouts to boot.Brusdar Graterol's SinkerIf you've watched much of the Los Angeles Dodgers over the last three seasons, this won't be the first time you've seen Brusdar Graterol throw a sinker like this one:Brusdar Graterol, 101mph Sinker with 16" of run. If you want to catch a glimpse of what's arguably the single best pitch in baseball right now, keep a close eye on the second pitch in this sequence:JosĂ© Alvarado Filth đŸ˜· <a href="https://t.co/FMlb4MU2FJ">pic.twitter.com/FMlb4MU2FJ</a>That is Jose Alvarado's cutter. The chase rate against it is up nearly 20 percent from 2021.The results: zero hits in 10 at-bats and nine strikeouts.Additional Honorable Mentions:Breaking Ball DivisionJordan Hicks' SliderIf you're a Colorado Rockies fan wondering why Chad Kuhl's slider isn't under the spotlight here, it's not because we're unaware that hitters are just 2-for-40 with 19 strikeouts against hslider. To wit, he once threw a 105 mph fastball that broke like a vintage Derek Lowe sinker.Yet Hicks has been going to the slider more frequently this season, throwing it about three times as often as he did in his return from Tommy John surgery in 2021.
