MLB The Show 21

MLB The Show 21 is set to be the first major sports title of 2021!

Covid has unsurprisingly had an impact on the release date of the game, but news on that could be on the way.

News is on the way in February, so keep your eyes peeled.


Cover Star

Previously we have stated that the two most likely candidates for MLB The Show 21 cover star are the AL and NL MVPs.

Atlanta Braves’ Freddie Freeman (National League) and White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu (American League) would both be first-time cover stars.

Freeman hit 13 homers in the regular season and added another two as the Braves lost out to eventual champions the LA Dodgers.

Abreu hit the second most home runs in the league with 19 in the regular season, and led the league in runs batted in.

Cover Concepts

Reddit user @TyRoland06 has created a concept cover for each team in the league.

Take a look at our favourites below.

Jose Abreu (Chicago White Sox)

As mentioned above, Abreu enjoyed a superb 2020 for the White Sox as he led the league in runs batted in.

Abreu would also be the first player from the White Sox to don the cover of MLB The Show.


Mookie Betts (LA Dodgers)

LA Dodgers went all the way in 2020, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 4-2 in the World Series.

2018 MVP Mookie Betts hit 18 home runs in his first season with the Dodgers, including one in the final game of the World Series.


Ronald Acuna Jr. (Atlanta Braves)

Another player who would be a first-time cover star for his franchise, Atlanta Braves right fielder Ronald Acuna Jr.’s cover looks great.

The National League runners up ran the Dodgers closest in the postseason, throwing away a 3-1 advantage.
