Hi guys, this probably a dumb question, but what is the meaning of a reverse-swapped pitcher or catcher? Tyia

Definitely not a dumb question. The term reverse splits for a pitcher means that he does worst against the same handedness of hitters. Usually pitchers are better at suppressing hits against their own hand, but some guys that is not the case. For example tonight, Jake Odorizzi is way better against lefties, rather than righties. For a hitter, it means they hit the same hand better than they do opposing hands. If he is a righty, and has reverse splits, he hits righties better than lefties, and vice versa.

It isn't tied to anything specific with catchers, so just a hitters and pitchers thing.
