Home runs may have spiked with the juiced ball in the 2019 MLB season, but that doesn't take away from just how exciting a crop of elite pitchers the MLB has right now. There are still some vets like Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander playing at an incredibly high level, and more recent breakouts like Blake Snell and Mike Clevinger have joined them.
