Cubs’ Javier Baez Announced as MLB The Show 20 Cover Athlete

This morning, San Diego Studio (SDS) revealed the cover athlete for MLB The Show 20, Chicago Cubs’ shortstop Javier “El Mago” Baez. The game will be available for PS4 on March 17, 2020, with certain pre-order versions granting access on March 13. Here’s everything we know so far about MLB The Show 20.


MLB The Show game designer and community manager Ramone Russell said of Baez, “Known as “El Mago” which translates to “the magician,” Báez has dazzled the baseball world for years with his enchanting skills that have rightfully earned his nickname. Whether Báez is stealing a base by masterfully evading a tag, making impossible catches look easy or pulling off his signature no look tag; his skills are unparalleled and he always does it with flair and swagger.”

Baez is the first Cubs player to ever be featured on the cover of The Show, dating back to the series’ first release in 1997. Below is a quick overview of the different versions of the game and the bonuses you can get for pre-ordering.
