I struggle lefty on lefty

SDS

I mainly struggle against high velo lefties when I'm using a lefty batter. Even if I'm waiting for that inside fastball, I just can't hit it. I've tried starting my PCI inside, tried different batting views, even tried ignoring the fastball and sitting offspeed. I'm slowly getting better, but I still only get a hit about 10% of the time, and half of those are usually bloops over the infield. So how should I set my lineup when I have this struggle, but I mash righties with my left handed bats? I have most LS collections done that do not include 2+ diamonds because I'm NMS.

My current lineup is as follows:

CF: Ricky Henderson AS
1B: Freddie Freeman LS (I'll usually switch him out for Alonso LS if I'm facing a lefty)
LF: Ronald Acuna LS
RF: Reggie Jackson Prime (I struggle lefty/lefty with him the least)
C Gary Sanchez LS
3B: Rafael Devers FOTF
2B: Whit Merrifield LS (wish I didn't have a .070 AVG with Torres FOTF)
SS: Aldalberto Mondesi Flashback

SDS

I struggle as well, but find almost always is the pitch either a inside heater or a slider breaking out of the zone. Maybe start by taking a strike and then sit on the slider. Try practicing HOF or higher against CPU lefties

SDS

try the offset camera, helps me to see the pitches better LH vs LP and RH vs RP, also start de pci inside and up corner

SDS

Does anyone struggle with Righty vs Lefty, or is it just me?

I'm always good against opposite hands.

SDS

I am good as a lefty vs righty, but I hate lefties.

If you struggle Lefty lefty just take out your Leftys if facing a leftt

So the best idea is to burn my whole bench or have a lineup of all righties? Yeah, I don't think so.

I do fine LvL. Its RvR I struggle with for whatever reason. My season average vs LHP is almost .450. Vs RHP its around .280.

SDS

I love switch hitters, for this reason.

This; sit high and in with the PCI, wait for that heater or adjust to a slider hung in the strike zone. Pretty much 80% of the pitches you are going to get

Real life are you a righty or lefty. I play baseball and see mostly eighties which is why I think I and most people hit eighties better and struggle more against lefties.

I always swung right

Try to wait for your pitch.
Let the high inside fastball go and focus on pitches in your zone.

SDS

I agree with what the others have said. Definitely be looking up and in. I find guys with reverse splits like Kyle Seager to be particularly helpful in this way. You’d be surprised how often people will pitch him like that even though that is his happy zone.

I don’t think looking for the slider is the way to go. If you’re looking fastball, you can still react to a hanger, and any other decent slider, you’ll probably be tipping your cap anyway.

SDS

I do sometimes, so I try to concentrate only on the strike zone and ignore the batter all together. The only other solution is to go to strike zone camera so you dont see the batter. I like being able to see the batter as long as it doesn't interfere with hitting. Weird that I dont have a right on right issue, but maybe because I am right handed.
