MLB The Show 20: Here Are Some Potential Teams to Use

When I play MLB The Show, my franchise experience consists of playing every inning of every 162 game season. That being said, each year I look to begin my journey with a new franchise, and every MLB team has a storyline you can run with. A variety of offseason roster moves have changed depth charts on several franchises that will give you unique challenges to look forward to. Whether you decide to start off with an established powerhouse or rebuild and make a run with an underdog, here are some of my MLB The Show 20 franchise mode team selections.

MLB The Show 20 Franchise Mode Options

Detroit Tigers

Detroit was the worst team in the MLB last year with a horrendous record of 47 and 114. And surprise, they are projected to be one of the worst franchises in the MLB again this season. Opting to begin your franchise with the Detroit Tigers would be the ultimate challenge. Successfully placing players in the right positions and turning this franchise into a playoff contender would be the ultimate storyline. I don’t believe there is a bad idea or bad approach with this team.

You could choose to swap out players to focus on contact and speed as more of a small-ball approach, or if you decided to make some trades and add a couple of free agents to go with a powerful approach that could also work. Whatever option you choose will also require you to find one or two more solid pitching prospects. Bring one up from the farm teams, or look in the free agent pool to bring in a veteran. Bottom line, the Detroit Tigers would be the ultimate underdog challenge.

Chicago White Sox

The Chicago White Sox are in a position to make some noise on the south side of Chicago this season. The offseason pick up of Yasmani Grandal has added some needed power to the lineup, and he’s a strong defensive addition at the catcher position. The White Sox also added Edwin Encarnacion, who has the ability to launch a long ball at any moment. His power, combined with perfect-perfect in MLB The Show 20, may be the difference in late-inning at-bats.

With potential upgrades to both starting and relief pitching, the Chicago White Sox can make a run deep into the playoffs.

Los Angeles Angels

There is extensive rake potential after the offseason produced by the Los Angeles Angels. I mean just look at these bats: Mike Trout, Anthony Rendon, Justin Upton, Shohei Ohtani. That is four out of nine, and not to mention the hitting ability of Albert Pujols and Andrelton Simmons.

If you choose to take on a franchise with the Angels, you instantaneously are graced with power. That being said, the LA Angels are a bit average in the pitching department. None of their starting rotation will be able to completely overpower lineups so be ready to keep pace with solid offensive numbers.

New York Mets

Can you bring a World Series back to the New York Mets? The pitching staff certainly has the horses to get you there. The combination of Jacob DeGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Marcus Stroman fill out the meat of the rotation. The bullpen also contains some talented arms like Dellin Betances, Seth Lugo and Edwin Diaz.

The New York Mets can compete in the National League, and if they plan to do so they will eventually have to meet up with powerhouses like the Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals. As you progress with the Mets, I envision you needing to find some better hitters on your farm teams who can contribute run support to the pitching staff.

Colorado Rockies

The Mile High City has lost a lot of pop this offseason. Coming off a forgettable 2019 season, the Rockies would be a unique challenge to take on as a franchise option. There is some potential here, being as the Rockies are situated in the NL West. A run at the Wild Card in this division is possible, but there would be a significant challenge in trying to outpace the LA Dodgers.

The Rockies still have some power left in the bats of Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story, but maybe you have to decide what you ant to do with Arenado. The unique challenge with the Rockies is the potential in their depth. Players such as Ian Desmond, Chris Owings and Raimel Tapia can be utilized very effectively across the long MLB season.

Atlanta Braves

I consider the Atlanta Braves to be a team that has returned as a major threat in the National League. After a 90-plus win season last year, the Atlanta Braves return the consistent play of Dansby Swanson, Marcell Ozun and Ronald Acuna Jr. There is most definitely a significant amount of talent within the Braves starting nine.

However, some rotational improvements would help their chances against many of the National League’s top teams. If you choose the Atlanta Braves, you’re not going to find many gaps in their lineup. If injuries in your starting lineup occur, then you may need to make some in-season acquisitions or dive into your farm teams a bit.

Seattle Mariners

Seattle would be a great franchise option and a perfect location for a World Series. The biggest challenge when leading the Mariners will be the strength of the division. First and foremost, you will have to battle with the Houston Astros and their powerful lineup. Second, you will have to take on the upgraded talent of the Los Angeles Angels and steady Oakland A’s.

I believe the key to building up the Mariners will be a focus on both upgrading pitching and speed on the basepaths. You’re not going to find an overwhelming load of power in the lineup so an emphasis on small ball and grind ’em out wins will be in order. Take a dive into your farm teams and look for opportunities to find talented arm strength in the outfield and add speed from the bench positions. There should be enough cap room to spend some money on free-agent additions. You may find some surprise value to help make a run at the playoffs.

The fun and unique challenges of a franchise come down to what exactly you are looking to accomplish. Is it your goal to take a powerhouse like the Los Angles Dodgers and attempt to create a dynasty? Or are you willing to take on the challenges of the Detroit Tigers and build from the bottom up and grind out every game of the season? Whichever you choose, the fun of diving into a farm system and moving players from different levels to find that diamond in the rough is the fun of managing a franchise. Get your storylines ready and get prepared to lead your franchise in MLB The Show 2020.

  1. Fun and enjoyable article by Jeff. So looking forward to this game!
    Now to get super off track, I'm really hoping that this game expanding to other consoles come 2021 results in an improved franchise mode. The gameplay is already super steady and well done. I'd expect a small boost to graphical elements for next gen consoles (fully implemented 3D grass rendering, improved dirt, improved textures, significantly lower load times). But the beefier CPUs in the next gen consoles should in absolutely no way limit the construction or revamping of franchise mode (in the small case that it somehow hampers development of the franchise mode currently... doubtful, but I'm also not a developer).
    Agreed, very fun and enjoyable article Jeff!
    I'd imagine I'll run through a few franchises, but these will be the key ones that I likely end up with:
    -Toronto: Canadian. Loads of potential offensively, lots of young arms that you can slowly bring along, and still a dandy farm (BBA ranked it 6th overall!). My usual issue is that given they're my favorite team, I struggle to make moves and stick with them. The maple syrup runs a bit too thickly in my veins!
    -Seattle: Same reasons as you listed. Never won a world series. Farm system is coming along, but do you want to sell the farm to make a couple of big additions? Rotation will need a lot of love as well.
    -Tampa: As a guy who loves a good rebuild, Tampa doesn't really fit the mold, but moving them to Montreal (if that's one of the cities you can move to), and having a Toronto-Montreal rivalry would be a heck of a lot of fun. Building around Wander Franco will be entertaining as well.
    -Miami: Still a bad team, but could also be a candidate for relocation. Great farm.

    Jays fan here also. I have a problem playing with them as I get too attached and am handicapped in making trades to improve the team.
    .... but Vladdy Jr., Bichette, Biggio???? Come on we gotta go with the Jays.

    Going with the Angels. Will rebrand to California Angels and most likely attempt the trade for joc and stripling just to see how that would go. Can't wait

    Always fun to read those kind of articles, good stuff!
    I am going to play with my Red Sox, and i feel that this year this will be a fun challenge with all the turnarounds going on into the franchise! we have a lot of question marks on the mound, we now have some cap space to get maybe a good hitter, and we need to keep them yankees down, which is a tall task. so to me the Red Sox could be an interesting teams even to non-fans of them
    Looking forward to starting one with the Brewers. They got new uniforms, and they’re roster isn’t all that talented. Obviously you have Yelich, Cain, Hiura, Urias, Woodruff and Hader you can build around but besides that, There isn’t a ton of standout talent on the roster. You have Brauns contract expiring so that will give you some financial space. You’d have to build the Farm back up a little bit but I think it would be a fun franchise to play with.
    Other teams I was thinking about:
    Braves (fav. Team - win now situation)
    Giants (rebuild)
    Rangers (new stadium should be fun)
    Relocation/created team
    Sent from my iPhone using Operation Sports
    I know folks mentioned Texas because of the new stadium. But, I think they are a fascinating team in general who have a lot of different possible outcomes.
    The rotation is, well, interesting. It's older, lots of injury prone guys, and without a tremendous amount of upside. Do you really believe Minor and Lynn can repeat their 2019 seasons? Is Kluber still any good? Is there any meaningful depth?
    The bullpen...pretty sure that you'll be mixing and matching all season (aside from maybe Leclerc, who himself can be shaky at times).
    Then the offense. Do you really trust anyone here? Lots of swing and miss, lots of pop. But there really isn't a proven bat on the roster who is consistent. If you're like me and use directional hitting, the lack of contact/vision on the roster will be tough to overcome (zone hitters might have a little easier time).
    Couple that with a minor league system devoid of high-end talent with close proximity to the big leagues, and reinforcements will be tough to come by.
    It's not tough to envision a scenario where Kluber/Minor/Lynn paint corners and become a tough 1-2-3 punch and where the big power bats lead a potent "big inning" attack. It's also not tough to envision a scenario where all the starting staff get hurt/regress and there is more swing/miss from the offense than there are bombs.
    (and we haven't even spoken about a pretty tough division that they have to content with)
    With getting seasons in being the grind that it is in an MLB video game I will be doing my usual Tigers franchise that I do every year. It’ll be nice this year having the full minors rosters ship with the game so I can get started with my franchise right away. I usually have a pattern that I sim games to get as many seasons in as I can because I also love the team building aspect of franchise modes.
    I think madden is the only game that I end up running multiple franchises in, every other major sports title I usually just run a franchise with my hometown Detroit team. It would be fun to try other teams in the Show but it’s such a grind even playing one franchise.

    Grinding an MLB The Show franchise is the most rewarding and exhausting thing I've ever done in sports gaming...lol.
    I recall doing an entire season (no Spring Training) back in MLB '16 with the Cubbies, same year they won it all. I ended up getting to the NLCS game 5/6 and lost to the Dodgers (who went on to win it all). Losing in the NLCS honestly felt like I lost in real life, it was hard, I couldn't play for a few days.
    However, going through ups and downs during the season with certain hitters, pitchers, and watching teams go from Wild Cards to Division Winners was outright incredible. The grind is one of those things you have to do at least once.
    ...Back on topic... I really like the Angels & Mets for this season. Los Angeles' lineup is going to be fun to hit with and trying to get deGrom/Thor some hardware would be a great challenge before they eventually flame out or move on from the Mets.

    If it’s done well this year, March to October might scratch that itch of being able to use other teams without putting in a full 162 game grind.

    I am really pulling for this too. I love playing The Show year round. But I can only commit to one play every inning, every pitch franchise (my carryover Yankees franchise from MLB 17 is that franchise).
    It would be great to be able to run with some other teams in MTO if they improve it a lot from last years debut.
    Honestly never managed to play more than about an hour of Mto last year, I hated pretty much everything about it. But at least with full minor league rosters in the game it means it will at least this year be a good springboard to start a season in the second year, while having actually tried out your players a bit. (even if I don't like the arcade and unrealistic way the mode plays)
    There are a few teams I'd be interested to play with, who the first year or two would be a real grind, so much so that I know I'd never actually manage to stick it out, so hopefully they've at least made it a bit more enjoyable and engaging. My fear is that it is still massively tied to DD and thus hugely limited as a result.
    Someone like the Tigers would be a cool team to start with in year 2, or maybe even the Rockies, as they have a pretty big change coming up in 2 years when all the terrible contracts come off, but they also lose 3 of their best players (Gray, Arenado and Story)
    Will MTO stick with Opening Day rosters for the entire year? I know that was what they did last year to start but did it ever get updated? If it's only OD rosters then by mid June I feel like it's pointless because stars emerge and others typically fade...heaven forbid there's a huge trade shakeup.
    Gameplay doesn't always bug me because I know things can get gimmicky for video game purposes, but dang do I lose immersion when I can't play with the current/real life players as they should be.

    I know you are talking about franchise here, but not long ago I started a new RTTS SS where I purposely had the Tigers draft him because the Tigers are not deep at SS and it was felt that I could land the starting role on the Tigers sooner than most other teams (which is what happened, my RTTS SS was called up from the AA team to the Show and given the starting role in the middle of June in his rookie season completely skipping AAA). But there are consequences for this decision and that was that it is not easy playing for a less than talented team. I was playing a full presentation RTTS game yesterday against the Yankees where all players bat, not just my RTTS characters and in the 4th inning Tigers pitcher Matthew Boyd was absolutely destroyed by the Yankees hitters first walking the first few batters he faced followed by surrendering hit after hit and once the dust had settle he ended up giving up 10 runs in the inning. Now this was a Spring Training game in my RTTS guy's 2nd season, so the RTTS manager kept Boyd in game despite the beat down the Yankees were doing to him. But it had to have been the longest and most painful inning I have ever experienced in this game. So good luck with your Tigers franchise. It you play full games you are going to need tons of patience for the first season or two. :google:

    Oh yea, when I run a franchise I usually play a game then sim the next 3 or 4 games. I try to use a different starting pitcher every time until I get back to the first one I used. I'll also sometimes during a period that I normally sim just sim like the first 7 innings and jump in for the 8th and 9th to try and mount a rally or close out a game. Every now and then I'll also decide to play a game in a period I'd normally sim if there's an interesting matchup involved. I'll usually sim 3 or 4 games in a row though because I love the team building aspects and want to get in as many seasons as possible.
    I fully expect my Tigers franchise to be a grind this year, the same way it has been the last couple of versions. Especially since I play on the harder difficulty levels because I like to really have to grind out wins, I play the game for the challenge. To be honest with playing on harder difficulties I think it’s been at least a couple versions of the show now since I’ve been able to build the Tigers in to a legit contender. I’m hoping this is the year I’m able to, either way I’m ready for the grind, I live for it.

    This will be interesting let’s just hope it’s done well this year. This seems like it could be a good way to try out some different teams without grinding out 162 game seasons because I have 0 intentions on grinding out any more than my one Tigers franchise like that.
    I am having a hard time figuring out what team I am going to run with in Franchise. There is no way I can play all 162 due to having a wife, 2 year old and a thriving business. So I normally play 1, sim 3-4.
    I am down to either the Cubs, Tigers or moving a team to Montreal for the expos. The Tigers would be a very tough and fun challenge. The Cubs would be a more win now team that will compete for a piece of metal (world series). Sorry had to throw that in there as I can't believe the commissioner actually said that. Or moving a team to Montreal although I don't like the fact you can't use a generic stadium (like in Madden). So I don't know if I will relocate any team at all.
    Tough decisions. Hell I am still playing MLBTS 17. I have been playing my RTTS guy since I did not have any time at all the last few years. I think I am finally ready to commit to play franchise mode again.

    usually I'd pick Tigers over Cubs 9 out of 10 times but this year must be the 10th time. I really like Detroit and dislike the Cubs, but this year they are at a most interesting crossroads. You could add 1 or 2 pieces and be a legit piece of metal contender or you could just burn the whole thing down, firesale the whole ball enchilada wax, and ‘‘Make the Cubbies Lovable Again’’, really make the team ''yours''. if I have time to do a NL Central team it's always between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh but the Cubs would have to enter the mix this year. and another upside is it will probably be the most competitive division this season.
    The Tigers are gonna have a killer rotation in the next few years if their young arms stay healthy and progress like they should. I'm excited to see guys like Mize, Manning, and Skubal come up.

    I'm prolly gonna have 4 franchises running.
    1) Marlins Carryover from '19. We're in 2021. I have a created player rated 99 and signed Mookie. First place in division. First season in which I'm playing every pitch
    2) Created team
    3) "Baseball Heaven". All-time Rosters. Gonna primarily play as Dodgers but also any team/player/matchup that's dope
    4) Pure GM/simulation. Prolly gonna use White Sox & Pirates
    Caulfield

    I have more connection to these young cubs players than any other team for some reason. I have never meet them or even been to Wrigley, there is just a feeling that I am more connected to them.
    I do like playing with my Detroit teams but it does make it hard with some of the bone headed moves they make. I like to keep things realistic as possible. I just don't know if I can play as little as I do and lose so much. I feel like if I play 30 games per season with the tigers, I am probably going to lose most of them. I hate losing, even in video games.
    I guess I will have to get the game first and get the time to look everything over and then make a decision.

    I probably would only have 9 teams I'd never use if the Houston organisation had any sense of decency, though I'm no Cubs fan, because of my liking the White Sox, and no fan of the Cardinals because the 2011 Cardinals made for a long cold lonely winter the year St. Lou beat Texas for a piece of metal (I was involved with a woman who was a Rangers fan. she checked out emotionally & physically after that loss lol).
    Comments please...my attempt at relocation and rebranding.
    In my little baseball universe, I am going to switch the Rays players with the Indians players.
    I will then rebrand the Rays and move them to Nashville and they will play in the Central. I will use this team as my team. I will not have to contend with the high budget Yankees and Red Sox in the East.
    The Charlotte team (with Indian players) will complete in the East as a computer team.
    Anyone got suggestions? Someone different than the Indians?

    The Indians wouldn't move, so that scenario doesn't make sense. Why not move the Rays to Montreal or Charlotte and stay in the east? The whole point of moving is to increase revenue, and eventually payroll.
    kind of Bias here but i think Blue Jays would be a fun franchise to use because of their position players but you would have to work with kind of a crappy pitching rotation and bullpen.

    I love the idea of swapping a whole organisation. I played most of the year with Bacons Fictional Marlins then for some off season fun I packed them up lock stock and barrel then moved them over to the Cubs. I did this in Roster Control/Player movement and started a new Franchise. I’m having lots of fun with my new team/location. Once you deviate from the real MLB in terms of team and location, I think whatever you can dream up will work. It’s your universe now or will be in a few weeks time.
    The Mariners will be fun. They have a lot of really good prospects, Julio Rodriguez (aka the next Juan Soto) who is still only 19, Jared Kelenic who is only 20 and almost big league ready, one of the better pitching prospects in the game in Logan Gilbert, as well as a lot of low minors prospects ready to break out into that top 100 discussion. Rodriguez was not even top 100 to start last season and he is currently top 10. I think SS Noelvi Marte could be the next to take that leap. I honestly think the Mariners will replace the *'s as the dominant team in the West if most of our top prospects pan out.
