Will MLB The Show 20 Have New Managers for Red Sox, Astros, Mets?

I have seen multiple people on OS bring up questions about how managers in MLB The Show 20 will be handled, and I think it’s a fair question. The beta is ongoing so the developers are focused on that right now, but it will be interesting to see if we get stuck with generic managers in MLB The Show 20 for the three teams (Astros, Red Sox, Mets) dealing with the ramifications stemming from Trash Cangate.

Right now, I don’t have the best handle on the situation because we have received somewhat mixed signals in the past as it relates to in-season updates for The Show. Last year, we did end up getting new scans for guys like Vlad Guerrero Jr. and Fernando Tatis Jr. after they were called up, which was great to see. They were a little delayed with the updates, but the point is we got them. We have also seen coach updates in games like NBA 2K, and we’ve seen face scan updates in other games like Madden throughout the year.

In other words, we know these things are possible, but we don’t know everything about how The Show updates its game. We also don’t know if there may be any licensing issues relating to MLB managers. So if these teams don’t hire managers by a specific date, are we not going to get them in the game? Or will this work like the updates for players do, and we’ll just have to wait a couple weeks before the developers add them to the game?

Obviously, folks are just hoping for a better franchise mode in general, but if we can’t edit managers and  really customize them, then it will be a bummer to have generic managers for these three teams. Here’s to hoping The Show developers can find a way to get new managers into the game when the time comes.

  1. They can add managers through a roster update. I don't know the certification process for them though. They have a union and their likeness is dependent on factors most of us here don't know.
    Some managers and coaches do not appear in game even after being in the position for awhile.

    It probably depends on who the teams hire. If Showalter or Baker get hired its more likely they will be in the game compared to a first year manager.
    The game needs “create a manager” with all the customization of caps
    They could even have manager specific ratings and unique strategy settings.

    lets hope it wont matter anymore going forward and all coaches and mgrs. names will be part of the Shows many new customisables.

    I really hope managers/coaches are customizable this year.
    Been wanting this for years!

    I hope they keep Beltran so he can at least be my virtual manager after my dreams were crushed.
    current scandal aside, I think Beltran would have wild success managing. I think in the long run, if all that matters is W&L's (and obviously they aren't), the Mets are hurt by not having Beltran. He's still young enough, he could still get another shot at running a team in a few years, if he rehabilitates his image. Hinch and Cora too. But there was just no way Beltran was going to have credibility with guys like Stroman in NY. Maybe in a few years we see Beltran coaching or even managing in KC.

    Thank God for the scandal. Beltran WAS the wrong choice. Now please update Franchise.

    They said there will be the option to re-locate and re-name teams, so at least that's something new for Franchise.
    As for the managers, I think they will just have them as part of an update. It wouldn't be too hard to add Rojas or whoever Houston and Boston hire.

    so managers are updates from a roster update?? so the faces of the coaches and managers and details are on the roster file? I would have thought it was a separate area
    has the show ever added managers in the game before?. from a roster update? or just a patch update?? because that would suck having to wait till May for a roster update for a manager to be added knowing if you start a franchise with a different roster base it won't have them in the game.

    I could be wrong, but I think in 2018 Alex Cora and Aaron Boone were added through a roster update.

    ok, that would explain why I never seen them in the game as I already started a franchise on a different roster.
    Interesting. because that one unique time they gave Mchutchen a haircut it didn't matter if you started the game it updated every franchise or roster you started on. so I guess the managers graphics are linked to the roster somehow
