MLB The Show 20 Player Ratings Revealed

MLB The Show 20

On February 20th, representatives from San Diego Studios got together for another (Episode Number 4) live stream episode this time discussing “the BEST players in the game” also known as the “DIAMOND CLUB”.  So, what is the Diamond Club?  According to the group:

“So as players are Gold in Diamond Dynasty they are on that precipice of going Diamond. Once they move up we welcome them into the Diamond Club and that’s how we are defining them moving forward”

“So in DD (Diamond Dynasty) we have a different scale than outside of DD.  0 to 99 in terms of the Overall and 85 and above is a Diamond”

The ratings of the Top 5 Players per position in MLB The Show 20 are listed next to the player.  From Starting Pitchers to Outfielders the group discussed each player and listed their Overall rating and Player Attribute numbers.  The ratings were based on “a 3-year performance average” according to the group.
