Question: Jeff will be pitching for our team.
Answer: But he has terrible aim.
Does the line in bold mean "he can't pitch acrately?" Thanks.
Yes. He can't pitch accurately. To have terrible aim; to not be able to throw well enough to hit the target.

Terrible aim is perfectly good English. (A native English speaker would know that.)
Thanks, riverkid and Soup.
Sorry for the typo--accurately.
Based on my source, it's "he has terrible aim." I read it.
