I don't think that his wiggling was deceiving at all. It is part of his process of coming set. There are several pitchers in the majors that do the same thing.
The balk was called because in the umpire's opinion, the pitcher came set, then reset again. The pitcher brings his hand in front to grip the ball with the wiggle, then brings his hands down into his set position. The balk during Bregman's at bat was a bad call. It was part of his process. The TV didn't have a visual on the 2nd one because they were showing a baserunner.
