Hardest pitcher to hit

SDS

I struggle with the fast sinker pitchers. Was just curious who are some pitchers in the game that are very tough to hit

SDS

I still get nightmares about that Fernando Valenzula showdown

I don’t know I just played glavine online and dudes sweeping curve is super hard to lay off after a sinker

SDS

I'm primarily an offline player and I always slap myself when I start my #4 against the nationals. I just can't seem to track John Lester

Rob Dibble

It depends on the difficulty for him just as it does when it comes to all finesse pitchers. Pitchers such as Fernando as much more effective when having to play through all star difficultly. In hall of fame however finesse pitchers such as himself become extremely easier to hit.

Oh wait so you obviously meant to ask about pitches not pitchers. That’s such a tough question to answer in general for myself as I imagine it all comes down to the specific pitcher throwing the pitch. I can be facing one pitcher throwing any certain pitch and be absolutely all over it but then face the following pitcher and struggle to even make contact. Just comes down to the release of that certain pitch or even pitcher which makes it that much easier or difficult to pick up on.

[censored] man it gives me a little comfort to see this right here lol. I don’t know what in the hell it is this year but I can’t hit him for [censored].

SDS

Ohtani for me. Struggle with his release point.

Lee Smith in the 2nd inning Showdown!!!
I mean, I swung at two inside pitches as a lefty yesterday that I still have nightmares about.
What I do is make a custom roster to face in BP that has the nastiest or toughest pitchers for me and load that up to practice on HOF and up.
Some of those are:
Cliff Lee
Fernando
Mike Scott
Niekro
Vida Blue
Cole
Orel and some I can't think of atm.
It definitely helps a bit.

Same. Chris Sale too if the user knows how to mix with him.

SDS

I don’t like pitchers whose high fastballs seem to rise. Wagner is like this and so is Corbin. Wagner is short but I don’t know about Corbin. Maybe height has something to do with it.

SDS

Wait until they drop the 99 Wagner later. The 91 is nothing compared to his end game version if it’s anything like years past.

SDS

I can’t see Aroldis pitches at all. Something messes with my eye or something. I might at well put the controller down when he comes in.

SDS

I played against Tanana for the first time and I couldn’t pick him up. His fast ball mixed with that CB, slurve and change up is filthy. Then the balls I did get a hold of were directly at defenders was definitely the most challenging pitcher I’ve faced so far.

You then proceed to say it depends on the pitcher .....huh? So obviously he WAS asking about pitchers you entire post is an argument on behalf of pitchers not pitches...weird opening

Something about his delivery makes his pitches seem the fastest to me.

Corbin Burnes
