I don't if anything changed but I am having issues with fast balls. Never had that much of a problem before but now I am late all the time.
My ways for hitting fastballs
Helps a lot but not everyone can get/afford one
#2 Warming up before grinding/playing H2H games
Go to sliders, set fastball speed to max. Then go to custom practice, use a hitter who's swing you like against any live series/legend player with generally fast stuff (DeGrom, Diaz, Ryan, etc.) Set the difficulty to hall of fame and start with only inside pitches and expand the zone as you get used to the insanely fast pitches. You don't have to be hitting perfect in the slightest since these pitches are well beyond any selectable difficulty and are more meant to make all star or whatever difficulty feel slower in comparison and sharpen your reaction time. After doing this BP for a while. You usually will be able to go into ranked and hit fastballs without latency.
#3 Where you stare while batting
I used to stare at the PCI while batting and wait for the pitch to come in. But the smartest way is to stare at the pitchers cap because you can see his arm winding up and get more reaction time for the pitch.
