Does Darren O'Day actually tip pitches?

SDS

Heard someone say this yesterday. I want to get him to P5 but not if it's going to put me at a disadvantage.

SDS

yeah by the way he holds the ball I read ..... split fingers or not

SDS

Assuming you can actually see his fingers in the ball. I sure can’t.

SDS

Some pitches definitely do tip pitches however like 5% of players you face will be able to read it. Not really worth worrying about with a RP imo, but there are also tons of options

SDS

this has been going on for years, him and nate jones both tip pitches, this is very well known throughout the community

SDS

How the HELL can you see his grip?

SDS

It's also true that if the pitcher shakes off a sign the next pitch is a FB up, usually in the strike zone but not always.

No so much the grip just fingers. Nate Jones hand is away from his body the entire wind up basically. You can usually see if there are two fingers or no fingers on the ball, some pitchers only have three pitches and spoting the fingers basically gives everything away.

I think these guys are talking about online

SDS

He does tip pitches and thats why I quit using him. I ran into a couple people online that knew this and he got rocked. Now if they hide his grip on the ball I'll use him

SDS

When he throws a slider, the ball is concealed in his glove up until he pulls it out to deliver the pitch. When he throws a sinker, the ball is exposed the entire time. That's what I have picked up on so far.

SDS

I used him twice and he got shelled both times so he went back to the inactives

When he comes set, you can see 2 fingers on the ball, which will mean a fastball, sinker or change. If you don’t see fingers, it’ll be slider. It’s not during his motion, it’s pretty easy to pick up.
