Why can't Otani pinch hit?

SDS

Seriously? He is a RF when not starting games so why can't he pinch hit?

Also and I can't explain this... why are fastballs SO fast? I know it is a fastball and I sit where the ball comes most of the time. I swing about as soon as the ball leaves the pitchers hand and I am still late. Is this my connection? (I use wireless). I watch the top players on HOF and it isn't as fast on my TV and I am at All-Star.

If there is a WS player in Oklahoma who wants to come over and test if I am crazy... I would appreciate it.

SDS

Your TVs response time maybe.

And Ohtani. Yeah.

SDS

Timing window issue, as well as his weird overhand delivery. it makes his fastball seem like its appearing in the zone almost immediately after it leaves his hand. But they just tweeted an update to the timing window is happening tonight, so hopefully you should have a slightly better chance at hitting it if youre looking for it.

This can get a little weird

I don’t have trouble pinch hitting with him.

You have two options, warm him up, and then bring him in to pinch hit and leave him for an inning to pitch as well, or go back into your bullpen before hand and “schedule to start” on a pitcher in your bullpen.

You can also do that in certain showdown moments to avoid them putting in a reliever you don’t like for three full batters.

SDS

I wish SDS would allow you to. I understand why they haven’t in the past because they didn’t allow starters to pitch out of the pen at all. But now that they allow that, they should be able to be used an pinch hitters (especially since you can pinch hit with a relief pitcher already)

What I do, is if i know my pitcher spot is coming up and I want him to bat. I will bring him in with two outs so he (hopefully) just has to face one hitter. Then after his at bat I will bring in a new pitcher the next inning.
