Headliners Set 4 2nd Half Heroes Orel Hershiser has replaced Awards Tim Salmon in Headliners packs today. Orel Hershiser is a 91 overall.
Well lads, Orel is back again. Hershiser has haunted many dreams during his tenure in The Show, and so it’s going to be very interesting to see where this card slots into things. I know a lot of people are still looking for pitchers they feel comfortable with on the mound as they adjust to a new pitching mechanic, so Hershiser could end up serving as that security blanket for many folks. That being said, I can’t say I have ever used Hershiser as much as most others. I think I use enough finesse pitchers as is, so I don’t usually gravitate to a player this meta. Plus, I have a general dislike of Orel as a commentator for Dodgers games, so I just don’t want to give him the satisfaction of putting him in my rotation. Take that, Orel.
Regardless, Orel has his sinker, cutter, curve, changeup, and 4-seam fastball. His stamina is 110, H/9 is 91, and his pitch control is 98. He has wonderful command of all three of his fastballs, and this ties together with a 75 mph curveball and 79 mph changeup. He’s going to top out in the low-to-mid 90s, and people online are going to press you with high sinkers since that pitch location with a sinker is still too effective in The Show.
This will not be the best Hershiser that is released, but I’ll be honest in saying I was hoping to go a little longer before I had to see him again in The Show.
Here are his ratings:
Here are his quirks:
The odds on the Headliners packs remain the same as always, so good luck if you try getting him in packs as you’ll have a 1:10 chance at a diamond, albeit that diamond might not be 2nd Half Heroes Orel Hershiser.
