Nick Madrigal brings elite talent in all aspects of the game to second base

Headliners Set players are announced early on MLB The Show 20's release schedule, which is visible in the main menu and on their website. For Headliners Set 12, we weren't given any hints for what the featured player would be, but he's officially live. Headliner number 12 is Nick Madrigal.

Madrigal is a huge addition to second base, where he will bring some amazing potential for base hits. Madrigal is one of the fastest players in the game with 98 Speed which helps him steal bases combined with his 92 Stealing and 98 Base Running Aggression. He's also a great contact batter with 111/99 contact vs R/L, and 114 Vision with 108 Clutch.

Expect to see Madrigal as the lead off batter for most elite Diamond Dynasty rotations, which means he's going to be a very valuable pull. The marketplace will have to adjust to such a talented player.
