GIF: Your undisputed pitch of the day

With very little ado and with a wink of the CBS eye in the direction of TheScore.com (I would have made my own GIF, but, as always, a massive shout-out to MLB.tv's local blackout policy), your undisputed pitch of the day ...


At this point, the observer might say to himself, "That's a pretty darn good breaking ball." However, the discerning observer might say to himself, "That's a pretty darn good breaking ball ... thrown by, it would seem, Casper Wells."

That's right: Casper Wells, an outfielder by trade and quite possibly inclination, whiffed Asdrubal Cabrera with what can be described without much flourish as an "off-the-table" breaking ball.

Wells, to whom ninth-inning duties fell in the White Sox's eventual 19-10 loss to the Indians, also flashed a 93-mph fastball with some movement. He was also the only White Sox pitcher on the night who didn't allow a hit. He was also, as the essential YCPB noted, the only White Sox pitcher to retire Jason Kipnis on the night. Kipnis entered his doomed encounter with Wells with a trio of doubles and a trio of walks to his credit.

No word yet on whether the Tigers will acquire Mr. Wells in advance of the non-waiver trade deadline and make him their closer.
