Let's get one thing out of the way:
DO NOT, under any circumstances, try this at home.
Cleveland Indians hurler Trevor Bauer is a professional. He can whip it. He can spin it. And during a high-intensity offseason workout, he gripped a three-ounce ball -- a regulation baseball is five ounces -- and hucked the thing halfway to oblivion.
Seriously, just watch:
ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN POINT NINE MILES PER HOUR???
Insane. Ridiculous. Filthy.
Bauer is clearly not messing around following Cleveland's disappointing elimination at the hands of the Yankees in the 2017 ALDS. In fact, he may be transforming into the very best (and possibly inhuman) version of himself ahead of this spring.
We don't know if he's adding more heat to his regular arsenal of pitches, but after watching this outrageous clip, one thing is certain:
I would NOT want to be the guy catching for him this year.
