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.

- Anthony Rendon and Francisco Lindor also took ratings hits but maintain diamond status
Gold Market Movement
- Tim Anderson, Salvador Perez, Mike Yastrzemski, Michael Conforto, Kyle Seager, Dylan Bundy, Byron Buxton and Bo Bichette all went from silver to gold. In fact, in Bundy’s case he went from bronze to gold. Bichette and Bundy are the biggest winners this week by far.
