With meter pitching, why does a changeup and FB......

SDS

always always always drift to the right? Regardless of the pitcher/stamina/confidence and perfect release is irrelevant. I am forced to try to pitch everything in the middle or inside because any attempt to dot the low outside corners with a changeup or fast ball, drift outside EVERY SINGLE TIME.

I have tried analog to death and it just isn't for me. The pitch either goes down the middle or the complete opposite side I was trying to throw to. I know this issue is probably a more of a me problem but still too wildly inconsistent even when compared to meter. I honestly don't know what to do anymore.

This is referring to righty pitchers by the way. I'm sure lefties have the same issue.

Make sure you have "pitch trail fade" on so you can see pitch movement. This isn't a pitching input issue, you just aren't seeing the movement the pitcher has. Most pitchers have movement on all pitches, and you need to know how those pitches move before throwing them.

I do have it where I can see where a pitch breaks and that's not the issue. A change up breaks north to south yet somehow kluber is throwing change ups with more horizontal movement than any 2 seam FB I have ever seen.

Well there are different changeups... straight change usually goes north to south straight down..but circle changes tend to tail to pitchers throwing side due to rolling off the three fingers
