Yu Darvish Strikes out Adam Lind with Eephus Pitch

Slow motion.

Yu Darvish looks to have added a new pitch to his repertoire. In the top of the second inning of a game between the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays, Darvish dropped a 2-2 eephus pitch over the plate for a called strike three. The pitch was clocked at a whopping 63 miles per hour.

So what was more surprising? Darvish's eephus pitch or Mike Carp's knuckleball?
