MLB The Show 20 was released this week for the PS4. Gameplay is similar to previous editions, but at least the rosters are updated to reflect the transactions from a busy MLB offseason. Of course, there’s a difference between simply getting the names right and building characters whose skill sets are true to real life.
This video scrolls through the players on all 30 teams’ rosters, with the Marlins beginning at the 16:07 mark.
I have also trimmed the Marlins-only clip for your convenience.
This Marlins roster is only a 90% match for the actual one. The Show puts Dustin Beggs, Sean Rodríguez, Josh Roeder and Lee on there instead of Jeff Brigham, Jorge Guzman, Jordan Holloway and Humberto Mejía. As someone who doesn’t own the game, I can’t explain why those differences exist.
We are grateful to have Danny Martinez, who manually revised the roster to include several missing Marlins and adjust player ratings. Search for “Godfather 2.0” in the MLB The Show vault.
