Submarine Pitchers in MLB The Show 22

Submarine pitching is not something you see every day anymore. A method of pitching most commonly used by pitchers who don't throw hard enough from over the top. Pitching the ball from the underneath angle adds a lot more movement to pitches. Additionally, the arm angle is extremely difficult to pick up, especially in MLB The Show.

All Submarine Pitchers in MLB The Show 22

Currently, in the game, there are only seven submarine pitchers with animations to use in the game. Those pitchers are:

Steve Cishek, Washington Nationals
Adam Kolarek, Oakland Athletics
Ryan Thompson, Tampa Bay Rays
Justin Lawrence, Colorado Rockies
Joe Smith, Minnesota Twins
Darren O'Day, Atlanta Braves
Tim Hill, San Diego Padres

If you are creating a Road to the Show player in MLB The Show 22, choosing one of those seven pitchers will work well.

And then there are the submarine pitchers that if their throwing animation was available for created players, it would be unfair. Those players are Tyler Rogers of The San Fransisco Giants and Eric Yardley of the Milwaukee Brewers. When Rogers throws the ball, his fingers almost scrape against the dirt.

Despite their animations not being available for creative players, both Yardley and Rogers are available to use in Diamond Dynasty. And I can say from personal experience, they are incredibly hard to hit.
