Nasty Sliders From 2019

Sliders are one of the best pitches to watch a pitcher throw. Below I decided to list some awesome sliders based on a few categories (500 pitch min.): SwStr%, xwOBacon, and batting average against. All of these sliders are very good and these pitchers know how to use them best. Plus below is essentially gif city, which makes this even more fun.


Patrick Corbin’s Slider 27.8 SwStr%

Kyle Gibson’s Slider 27.2 SwStr%
