Robert Coello’s “WTF” Pitch

So I was just reading this story on how Coello has spent the last few years perfecting what is essentially a forkball. No one really throws forkballs anymore, but Coello has it down to a tee. Except there’s one difference between his forkball and everyone else’s.  There is absolutely NO spin on his pitch. It’s essentially an 80 MPH knuckle ball. And he has deemed this pitch the “WTF” pitch. “Catchers call it. Hitters say it”. Pretty fucking boss move on his part. All I know is that is one nasty ass pitch, and I would not want to be in the batters box trying to get a hold of that thing. Especially when he couples that with a mid-upper 90s fastball. Its taken him years to finally get it right, but I have a feeling all that work will all pay off in the end.
