Digging into the Mets player ratings in MLB The Show 20

MLB The Show 20 is about to be released in stores across the country. What kind of ratings did New York Mets players receive?

For those hungry for some baseball, MLB The Show 20 was just released on PS4 for fans who preordered the game and will be available everywhere on March 17th. For those disappointed by the delay, picking up the game may be just what the doctor order to get everyone through the postponement. It’s also an opportunity to see how some of your favorite New York Mets players will do.

Just like every year, MLB The Show features all 30 major league teams, complete with the projected rosters to start the season, available for the user to play as any team of their choice in an exhibition game, a full season in Franchise Mode, create an All-Star lineup in Diamond Dynasty or work your way through the minor league system in Road to the Show.

Seeing as the Mets look to enter the season with a star-studded team, featuring the two-time Cy Young Award Winner Jacob deGrom, Rookie of the Year Pete Alonso, as well as several former All-Stars such as Noah Syndergaard, Jeff McNeil, and Robinson Cano, they look to have quite a few players rated very highly in the game.

Please bear in mind that each player’s rating is not indicative of how they will necessarily perform in 2020, and may not be reflective of each player’s individual talent or potential as the season progresses.

Firstly, the top-rated player on the Mets Roster is, surprise surprise, the team’s ace, Jacob deGrom, who was one of four players in the game with a 99 Overall, the highest rating in the game.

After deGrom, 1B Pete Alonso and 2B Jeff McNeil are each listed with an 89 Overall rating, which makes sense seeing as they were the team’s two best hitters in 2019.

Former All-Star Noah Syndergaard is rated at 87 overall, followed by RP Seth Lugo, the team’s top reliever with a rating of 85 overall, and new signee Dellin Betances at 82 overall.

Outfielder Michael Conforto will also enter the season with an 82 overall, and despite a down year in 2019, second baseman Robinson Cano is rated at 81. Following suit, starting catcher Wilson Ramos is given an Overall of 80, and infielders Jed Lowrie and Amed Rosario, along with starting pitcher Marcus Stroman are each rated with an overall of 79.

The returning Yoenis Cespedes is given an overall of 78 to begin 2020, and 3B JD Davis a 77 overall to begin his second year in New York. After struggling in 2019, closer Edwin Diaz has been downgraded to 77 overall.

As for the remainder of the players who will probably/potentially be on the Mets opening day roster, they are rated as follows.

Starting Pitcher Steven Matz, CF Jake Marisnick, OF Brandon Nimmo and LHP Justin Wilson all have a rating of 73 overall, SP Rick Porcello and 1B Dominic Smith are rated at 71, RP Paul Sewald at 70, RP’s Jeurys Familia, Brad Brach, and INF Eduardo Nunez at 69 each, RP Robert Gsellman and Michael Wacha at 67, and backup catcher Tomas Nido at 64.
