The competition is heating up in the MLB Players League on MLB The Show 20. Through four nights of play, we’ve seen walk-offs, a handful of guys hitting dingers as themselves, and gratuitous celebrations. With a 29-game regular season and only eight playoff spots, nearly every game matters.
On Tuesday, 12 Major League Players will be live streaming their matchups. Headlining the evening’s tilts are 2019 All-Stars Joey Gallo (Texas Rangers) and Jeff McNeil (New York Mets). Gallo went undefeated on opening night, treating his fellow big leaguers like lambs at a slaughter. The Rangers’ slugger outscored his opponents 30-6 in a display of joystick brilliance. It’ll be tough to replicate now that the target is on his back. McNeil continues to show the baseball world that he’s the most versatile player in any game, real or virtual. He went 3-1 and sits in first place in a competitive NL East. On Tuesday, McNeil faces tough competition in Arizona’s Jon Duplantier (3-1), Toronto’s Bo Bichette (3-1), Cincinnati’s Amir Garrett (3-1) and Houston’s Lance McCullers Jr. (2-2).
