Could we give Darvish more than 5 pitches?

SDS

The dude throws like 12 pitches! I wish there was a way to give him even more than just 5 pitches. That would make him even better!

SDS needs to expand on the 5 pitches

Pro Baseball Spirits has a pretty cool system that can give pitchers upwards of 12 or 14 pitches I believe. But they also don't just give players random sinkers, cutters, or 2 seam fastballs like Sony does for some forsaken reason

I understand that. The thing is that Darvish actually throws those pitches. I wish that you could maybe click x twice or something like that for a different pitch. Just a thought!

Oh no I'm saying that in MLB The Show they just give players extra pitches so they aren't 2 pitch pitchers. Like, Nolan Ryan was a 2 pitch pitcher, but they give him a Sinker and a changeup anyway. And in Prospi they have a system where you can have so many more pitches

RIght. I might not have made that clear. I agree that they do that, and think they should keep it real, and not give random pitchers sinkers, unless they actually throw them. That would make those pitchers more wanted. It would be nice if they could add ALL of the pitches the pitcher actually has.

I've been wanting at least 6 for a while now, it's dumb that some guys don't get their full arsenal.

Darvish has thrown at least 7 different pitches this year, with 6 of them being used at least 5% of the time.
