This has to be one of the hardest times in MLB history to be a hitter. So many pitchers are throwing so many different types of nasty pitches that have levels of movement that we’ve never seen before.
One of those pitchers is the Rockies’ Justin Lawrence. The 28-year-old righthander showed off some ridiculous pitches in a recent spring training game that had a number of players on the Brewers looking like amateurs.
I’m not sure what you’re supposed to do with these pitches. The movement sent them way out of the strike zone but also made it so the hitters couldn’t stop from swinging at them.

Just filthy stuff.

Good luck with that stuff, professional hitters!
