PATIENCE at the plate is paramount. Taking pitches and working the count will do wonders for your success. If you aren’t taking more than 10+ pitches per inning you are being way too aggressive. Working the count and getting favorable hitters counts will allow you to sit on a pitch.
Most Diamond Dynasty pitchers have very low stamina to begin with so working on raising the opponent starting pitcher’s pitch count will help you later in the game. You may need to wait till the 4th or 5th inning before the opposing pitcher has reached his limit and then you can start producing runs. Your opponent will also end up having to go to his mediocre bullpen for relief.
A good strategy would be to always take two strikes with your lead off hitters. For the run producers look for a pitch in a specific zone. This will help force your opponent to throw about 30-40 pitches in the first couple innings.
Using the PCI (Pitch Coverage Indicator)
Never try to chase the ball with the PCI. Wait for your pitch and if it’s not there either take it or foul it off. Also, depending on the situation use the swing type (normal, contact, power) to your advantage.
