MLB The Show 20 Roster Update Adds Gavin Lux, Options Issue For Rookies and Prospects Fixed

A new roster update has arrived for MLB The Show 20 adding Gavin Lux (Dodgers) and David Hernandez (free agent). No other players have been added.

As noted by Gagnon39 and a few others, the issue with rookies and prospects being out of options has been fixed. They now have 3 options.

Here are the MLB The Show 20 roster update changes.

  1. The options seem to be at least better. I can't tell you exactly how many each player has but I know Hoerner should have all three. In the original roster he only had one. Now he has three. I'm most likely rolling with this roster since it's from SDS for franchise.

    Lux doesnt have face scan or audio.

    I imagine it will be added once he plays a game and SDS is allowed to do so. If you use the old roster you'd never get the updated face scan. Could be wrong here.

    Lux is the only addition. I went through the missing players list and he was the only one I found.

    I was about to do the same. But what about options? Are those not fixed? It seems like they are to me.

    I can't remember how Tatis Jr was handled last year.
    I thought I remember him being patched into the game or something? Because I know I started a Franchise before he was added and when I heard about him I looked in my Franchise and he had his face scan.

    God I was smart to do all this day 1 and my own exports
    and all the comments I got was 'I was wasting my time a update was coming in a few hours' LOL
    thank god I did the right thing or I would have wasted a week of my life waiting.

    It's my understanding that if you have SDS's official player (from their actual roster as opposed to him being created by someone), that he can be updated. I think the test on that is whether you can edit the player's name in-game or not.
    My only real concern is the options. I really don't care THAT much about the 50 or so missing prospects I've never heard of. I can definitely live with it. I'm ready to start my franchise and if these options are fixed like they seem to be, I'm good with it.

    But aren't your minor league options all jacked up?

    yeah but you actually think SDS are gonna fix that too?? this virus has a better chance of ending first before that happens

    It is fixed, that's my point. I had a franchise with the original roster, Hoerner had one option. This new one... three.
    That's reason enough for me to use this update.

    Not home right now. Does this new roster update top prospects. The top prospects list in franchise is whack.

    I'm not sure. Gavin Lux is listed as #1 now.
    It goes...
    1. Gavin Lux
    2. Korey Lee
    3. Bobby Witt Jr.
    4. C.J. Abrams
    5. Corbin Carroll
    6. Kris Buci
    7. Jordan Balazovic
    8. Triston Casas
    9. Jeremy Pena
    10. Daniel Espino
    For me, my main problem was the fact that options were totally out of whack. I was really dreading having to monitor that using 30-team control
    Red_Ted_is_back
    Forgive my ignorance here, but does the options error impact players in RTTS (human or CPU)? Should I restart my RTTS now?
    Thank you

    It should not affect your RTTS player, however, it is likely to affect other propects on other teams in that they will get claimed on waivers faster than normal. At least potentially.

    He wasn't on the initial roster but was added in an update after the season. When he was added you couldn't change his audio or name but he did not have his face scan until another update occured.

    What's the issue with options? Are prospects all out of options before coming to majors?
    some are, some are correct. started last year and has bled into 20 :(
    there are some prospects that have yet to debut but have zero options
    When I checked the new roster update, this was fixed. That is to say, rookies and prospects have 3 options.

    that is awesome. they didnt happen to make options editable did they?

    Not that I can tell, but the options are definitely there, unlike before. Again, to each their own, but this makes basically any roster base set with the old rosters pretty much obsolete. I know it can be regulated by 30-team control (which I run) but it would be a headache.

    Considering the state of the country right now, a roster that has the correct options and several real minor leaguers is plenty good enough for me to start a franchise or RTTS with. Now that there won’t be a million trades of top prospects during the first month of the season I consider that a win.

    Is this the roster we've been waiting for,no face scans or portraits, underwhelming to say the least.

    With the country shut down, an update is better than none

    they also added David Hernandez to th free agent list. dunno why they didnt put him on Nationals
    also, changed Dodgers Kiki Hernandez position to 2B fwiw

    Can’t believe Lux isn’t in the audio DB.

    yeah, I'm surprised Luck wasn't even in the database. I'm using Lutz, it's less than ideal but it beats hearing ''#9''
    Just read Ridin and crew will be using this Roster as their base
    So if its anything like last year they will be able to add guys without you restarting your Franchise
    Rmiok222
    I feel like this minor league roster out of the box thing has been very misleading..
    I could live with the AA & AAA rosters, and normally I'd agree with Meat Loaf: 2 out of 3 ain't bad
    but that Single A is killing me
    Appreciate them fixing the minor league options! One step closer lol now lets fix the options lol they have given vets like JD Martinez 3 options. Maybe he has technically has those but for all intensive purposes ... a player with his service can not be “optioned” to the minors . In game , he should have zero options.

    Stupid question, but how is the roster able to update without restarting the franchise?

    They did it last year with guys like Bichette, Tatis, Guerrero Jr.etc.
    Remember these guys are already on the disc
    I am very disapointed with this years the show... After i heard First time that real minors are in the game i was so excited... i thought face Scans etc are in.... now i habe to face the reality

    You have to restart your franchise if you want a updated Face scan because you need the ID if there’s.. I have no idea if it’s the same Id as last years.. if it is I might get lucky, I exported him out of a roster from last year so I might get it right

    Thanks for the info. I think I’ll just start again as there seem to be many AA players with 2/3 options used which I’m assuming was the issue.

    What if we use scea's version of lux? Will it automatically update to his face scan in franchise when the mlb season gets underway and the paperwork goes through?

    Since he was added yesterday his paperwork did go through, we'll have to wait for a scan till next year
    The O's don't have those two crazy pitching prospects from Asia anymore with A potential. A quick glance revealed fewer glaring made up prospects with way too high potential. Still, Rutschman has B potential but some 23 year old catcher name Stuart Ojeda (lol, Stuart) has A potential. The #1 pick and one of the highest rated prospects in baseball isn't even the best catching prospect on his team. Stuart is only rated 55, though, so he has a long road to climb. That is still far better than some 75 rated A potential 22 year old long blonde haired asian closing pitcher like before. So kudos, I guess.
    Still, this is pretty stupid, when you think about it. With the new "full" minors roster, there is even less of a need to make up weird non-face scan prospects with high ratings and potential. How hard is it, when the large number of prospects are actually in the game, far more than ever before., to not include some crazy made up prospects ready to become stars? I don't need star prospects with face scans and audio to be stuck in the minors because Jean-Miguel Wong is gunning for rookie of the year.
    Also, the O's don't have 12 catchers anymore, thank god. Just 11 now.
    BUT, some goods news: some of the options have been fixed, and they did steal the Gavin Lux CAP from the vault for us. It's nice to know I don't have to actually go and download 1 player from the vault anymore.
    Don't get me wrong, as an O's fan, I'm stoked that I'm not stuck playing with Addey Richmond right from launch. Genuinely happy they went this direction, and I get no paper work means certain prospects could not be included, and that the virus has made things much much harder, so we are going to have to be patient.
    The plus side, is Ridin's new roster is not going to be missing official face scans and audio since none were added. A small victory I guess.

    rosters must be organic, Stuart Ojeda is a C prospect in my file of yesterday's update. still, I think they overated Rutschman (should have been no higher than 63-64 IMO) but at 70 Overall I'm gonna go ahead and promote him to the Show. funny thing is, when I moved Rutschman to the majors and bumped his salary to $540,000 he magically received the top prospect icon. go figure

    His rating may or may not be too high, but if he isn't an A potential then there shouldn't be many A prospects out there.
    I'm using my carry over franchise but I did start a new franchise and the options being incorrect was a minor problem compared to the full minors prospects.
    I haven't logged in and started another new franchise but if they haven't changed those full minors rosters I don't see how anybody can run a sustainable franchise.
    Those using these new SCEA roster, are they serviceable enough? Meaning, options are fine, enough prospects, etc?
    I think I’m just going to start with these. I know ridin will be better but these look decent enough for me.

    Thanks. What do you mean by that? Just the progression/regression? Overstocking positions and stuff?
    I’m just trying to determine to hold off or not but who I’m I kidding. I’ll probably start a franchise today, ridin roster will drop and restart lol.

    Players missing (prospects and 40 man players), ratings and potentials highly inflated, not balanced positionally so there are millions of trades that happen....the list goes on

    His roster should be out in a day or two. Just do some play now games to pass the time.
