High Sinker/Fastball

SDS

This is for a specific player...Willie.
If u guys have used him, how do you cope with his stance/swing? Its obviously harder to pull a pitch inside, especially up and in. But what do you guys think?

The word is out on willie now so most people who face him will go with the sinker/slider combo. Some guys have “quick” swings but with willie it seems I have to swing a little bit earlier on those inside pitches. If I see the ball come high out of his hand then I’m gonna sell out on a high sinker. But if it comes out a little lower then I’m assuming it’ll be a slider low and away. I just anticipate a sinker every pitch so that I’m on time for it and react to the offspeed

Pretty much the Show 20 right there.

The high sinker is good against anyone, such a glitchy/op pitch since 2019.
