So, let's first check out all the submarine pitchers in MLB The Show 23.

All Submarine Pitchers in MLB The Show 23

Submarine pitchers are very rare in MLB The Show 23, and maybe that's one of the reasons fans love them so much. They have a unique pitching style, releasing the ball just above the ground. This causes the ball to move differently from traditional pitches, dropping at an astonishing speed, and rotating forwards towards the pitching arm side.

The big difference between submarine and sidearm pitching motions is their release point. As mentioned above, submarine pitches have a low release point. In the case of sidearm pitching motions, the release point is higher.

It's hard to tell who is a true submarine pitcher, and who is just using a sidearm pitching motion in today's game. In MLB The Show 23, we have three players that are true submarine pitchers.

These players are Adam Cimber from the Toronto Blue Jays, Gregory Wyatt Mill from the Boston Red Sox, and Tyler Rogers from the San Francisco Giants.

All Sidearm Pitchers with Submariner Pitching Motions

There are also some pitchers that many believe can be considered submariner Pitchers if you just loosen the definition a little bit. However, their pitching motion is closer to a sidearm one. So, we classified them as sidearm Pitchers.
