Pitch Types

SDS

Hi guys, player from HK. I've built a southpaw flamethrower SP with 4seamer (94-98mph), 12-6 curve (77-82mph), slider (82-86mph) and a SFF (82-86mph) accordingly. My 12-6 curve and SFF doing quite well as strikeout pitch or as a combo to strike the batters out. Hoping to get some advice on the 5th pitch selection from you guys. Cheers.

Cutter.

You can use it inside on the right handers.

I recently played an online Play Now game with the Reds and selected Trevor Bauer as my pitcher. I noticed that his cutter clocked at about 83 mph rather often. That's a lot slower than most cutters I've seen on the game, but I was having a lot of success with it in that Play Now game. I thought of it as having the effect of an inverted, slower change up. I thought I would recommend that pitch and specific velocity. Have a good day!

I have a RHP. Arch Type Filthy. I use:
Slider
Cutter
Changeup
Splitter
2-Seamer

Low and outside to K the righties works really well.

In the dirt splitter for lefties or changeup low and way on lefties. Cutter high-in off the plate works as well just have to worry about beaning them.

I use platinum equipment on Legend. Avg. about 340 K's a year.

Thanks for the comment mate, base on my experience, I think the break of a cutter is more important than the velocity and I'm pretty sure Bauer's break is filthy. 🤣

I add a cutter like you said and it works very well.
