Cleveland Guardians’ Cal Quantrill Throws Bizarre Wild Pitch Over Everybody

Right-hander Cal Quantrill posted a quality start Thursday against the Angels, but his hilariously off-target curveball went viral regardless.

Cal Quantrill is fresh off a two-month stint on the injured list, and he may still be shaking off a bit of rust.

The Cleveland Guardians starting pitcher had held the Los Angeles Angels off the board through two innings Thursday night, but he found himself in some hot water when he walked shortstop Kyren Paris with one down in the third. Paris stole second, then trotted his way down to third after the wildest of wild pitches from Quantrill.

The first pitch Quantrill threw to first baseman Brandon Drury was a 74 mile-per-hour curveball that didn’t curve. The pitch sailed several feet over catcher David Fry and the home plate umpire, hitting the backstop in the air.

The pitch was so far out of the zone that it was not mapped by Statcast
