MLB The Show 20 Roster Update: Blackmon, Soto, Gray, Lynn Soar to Diamond While Astros Fall

This week should become the new normal for roster updates. Last week we only had players going up to diamond, and that’s normal for every Show cycle. Most of the time, the developers are quicker to boost ratings than drop them. However, with some more games on file, now we’re going to see more ups and down for the ratings changes. So let’s take a look at the MLB The Show 20 August 14 roster update.
