MLB The Show 21 Patch 15 Available Today - Patch Notes

MLB The Show 21 patch 15 is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S fixing a few gameplay related issues.

As mentioned by KnightTemplar, the issue with pinch hitting for the pitcher in manage only mode was fixed.

They fixed a crash with a patch and created another problem when pinch hitting for the pitcher. The pinch hitter would take the mound, you’d go to the bullpen to replace him and there was no option to do so. You were stuck with the pinch hitter pitching to 3 batters (if you could back out of the freeze in the bullpen). No double switch.

Check out the patch notes below.

GAMEPLAY

  • Fixed a freeze that would occur when a pitch hit the dirt below the catcher
  • Players will now be notified when a pitcher pinch hit for another pitcher
  • Fixed an issue where players could get stuck in the bullpen menu
  • We have implemented a daily cap of 35,000 XP earned through gameplay. This cap shouldn’t be reached through “normal” means of play – this is intended to combat large amounts of XP games from out of the ordinary or exploitative gameplay. We are committed to increasing this cap in the future if needed. (The cap will adjust accordingly during double XP events.)

ONLINE HEAD TO HEAD

  • Players will now have the option to initiate a grief report in the pause menu by pressing L1

    Thank you for your answer. Since I have not played with MOM in '21, what was wrong with that mode ?

There was a workaround that I posted, but it’s a moot point now as its fixed.
    And now it looks like the old issue is back
    I pinch ran for Voit with Florial and at the end of the inning the game crashed.
    :jpshakehe
    So now we are back to having to pinch hit or pinch run for a guy who plays the same position otherwise the game will crash
    New problem or previously unnoticed?
    Pinch hit for pitcher. Next inning the pop up comes up informing you you have a position player on the mound do you want to replace him…I pressed no by accident.
    Go to bullpen to replace position player on mound- no option to do so. I could only sit-down or cancel my warmed up relievers.
    As a work around I went to sim game then replaced the pitcher as a manager, however all hitting stats were set to 0 for the duration of the game. None of the hits, runs, RBI’s etc. Which happened previous to the bug were recorded.
    They’ve made a mess of the bullpen this year, needs patching again.

    When you hit no when prompted to replace the hitter, the position player became the pitcher of record and has to pitch to 3 batters fulfilling the 3 batter min rule requirement.
    That’s not a bug

    I just tested this in franchise mode. Got 2 runners on, pinch ran with 2 pitchers, inning transition and game didn’t crash.

    Okay Shawnn....looking back I now assume you play MOM. I tested this regular franchise. So I went into MOM and pinch ran a CF for my SS.....GAME CRASHED. For the love of........!!!!!!

    Yup exactly.

    Yup exactly.

    Wow. It does the same thing when PINCH HITTING. I pinch hit for two batters with players who don't play that position and.........game CRASHED at the end of the inning. WTH!!!!!
    Fixed one problem brought in two and these two are Manage Only Mode GAME KILLERS. Wow, unbelievable.

    Problem is Shawn. What if you don't have someone on the bench that plays the same position as your batter???? This is ridiculous. Same with the runner sub. Another 2 weeks for another patch???
    I guess I'm just going to chuck this game and go back to 20. Let me give my review score for this years The Show 21. With all the glitches in this game and now that Manage Only Mode has turned into a "just make do and forget about strategy", a big fat ZERO. Geez. I've supported these guys for a long time, but.....baseball season is almost over.
    At least I had a workaround for the bullpen glitch until I downloaded this piece of garbage patch.

    Did the game crash when you pinch hit or after the end of inning ? Was your pinch hitter able to at least hit ? I tried that and the guy was able to pinch hit but crashed at the start of the next inning.
    It is disappointing. I really like the game this year but again for us MoM guys it is a big problem.
    I went and re-submitted the bug report. Hopefully the will look at this again. At least we have their ear this year. 2018 and 2019 bug reports were submitted for in game injuries not occurring in MoM games and I got nothing but crickets.

    Crashed after end of inning. I've submitted a bug report also. I'm going to post a sorta workaround in a second.
    For MOM players. For your information regarding the new (old) crashes happening in the game after they fixed the bullpen problem.
    1. You can pinch hit for the pitcher and game will not crash.
    2. When pinch hitting, e.g., for the 2nd baseman, the pinch hitter MUST either have 2nd base as his primary OR secondary position. You can not pinch hit a Catcher, e.g., that doesn't not have a secondary of 2nd base.
    3. When pinch running....same as above. You want to run for your catcher? The pinch runner must have a primary as catcher, OR a secondary as catcher.
    So you really need to check when doing so. What a mess.
    If you have the winning run on 3rd bottom of the 9th, no outs, a sloth RF on 3rd and you want to put in a speedy SS off your bench to run for him and he doesn't have RF as a secondary position....if you do it....game will crash, so best to stick with the RF on 3rd.

    MOM bullpen problem is........FIXED.:59:

    They fixed that but I just had the game crash in MOM. Pinch ran with a player at a different position and between innings it crashed.
    Why can't they just look at the code for last year and replicate it? At this point I don't have confidence they will get it right for mlbts21.
    Check swing is still broke. That said, this is my first time playing this game this year (got it on xbox game pass), and this is the best sports simulation on the market. I'm not even that much of a baseball fan, but this game is just fun to play. Better than 2K, better than Madden. Props to MLB the Show devs for creating an actual simulation and caring about quality.

    Did you read the temporary fix at the top of the page? It's a workaround but it works.

    Exactly. Pinch hit or pinch run with a player at a different position and it crashes at the next half inning.
    I submitted a but report but I'm at the stage where I'm just going to stop playing until and unless they fix this game. 270 games played in MOM in mlbts21 and I'm tired of not being able to manage like I want to.
    I'm Charlie Brown and this game is Lucy tricking me into believing and then pulling the football and I go crashing to the ground. I ain't kicking Lucy's football no more - or at least until the next patch.

    September call ups are coming which will give you greater options off the bench. The workaround works. For the most part it should work out, not perfect, but....

    It's manage mode. I want all the options available to me.
    I discovered the crash when in a tie game - 9th inning my second baseman got a single with 2 out. I keep a fast outfielder on the bench exactly for that situation. Outfielder ran for the second baseman. Stole second. Next batter drove in the run. I'm ahead 4-3 with my closer warm and ready. Looking forward to the bottom of the 9th. Game crashes.
    If I can't do that then I'll wait until they patch it - if they ever do.

    Not trying to be argumentative but if you did this after the latest patch, and with the discovery of the new (old) bug why did you attempt something you knew would fail?
    Another workaround until it’s fixed is to look at your teams players secondary positions and, e.g. assign a 1b who has no secondary position with IF (all infield positions), or 2b/3b/SS things like that. That’s what I’ve done for my team. I don’t really care what the secondary positions are because I’m not going to use them for a player who doesn’t play a particular position in real life.
    This would certainly help you until the next patch. Iwas really upset with them botching this...again, but the game is just too good. Not going to throw the baby out with the bath water.

    I mistakenly thought the bugs had been fixed. I guess I should have know a new bug would be introduced but didn't know which bug until I played the game. It's a great game but in manage mode I want to be able to pinch hit and pinch run with the best available player.
    It appears to me the developers patch bugs and then rely on us to test the game for them and report back.

    To me it almost seems like instead of fixing it they made a choice that the old issue was less severe than the new issue and just reverted the code back to the previous version (for this specific issue). It could be that they truly don't understand where the issue lies in the code and couldn't fix it just yet...
    Just a guess on my part...
    Are there too many fly balls? Feels like every out is lazy fly by either myself or the cpu. I really started noticing after the contact swing patch.
    Anyone know how many fly balls are hit per mlb game? Based on my investigation it roughly 7-8 per team, where in the show I’m seeing some games with close to 20 per team

    I very rarely go after high fastballs now because of this. Even if it’s timed right I’ll pop it or fly.

    Right!? it wasn't like this before, surely I'm not going mad! Its happens to the CPU also
    I swear there weren't as many fly outs before the patch
