Now that we're well into the year, Sony San Diego has found a reliable groove with Mystery Missions in the new Mini Seasons game mode for MLB The Show 22.

Arriving this year for the first time, Mini Seasons gives players the challenge of three-inning games in a condensed season against computer controlled teams featuring actual lineups used by other players in Diamond Dynasty.

While there are tons of Mini Seasons goals, the Mystery Missions offer hidden rewards without actually explaining how to complete them.

The first new Mystery Mission in Mini Seasons is dubbed "Southpaw Specialist," and as the name implies it turns the focus to lefties.

In order to complete this mission, you'll need to tally 5 strikeouts with left-handed pitchers in a single game.

Once completed, you'll earn a Headliners Set 19 Choice Pack which could hold a top-notch Diamond for your squad.

Finally, the second Mystery Mission for July in Mini Seasons is called "Now it's Sho-time!" and highlights the cover star himself.

However, players won't be able to just use any version of Shohei Ohtani, as this Mystery Mission is specific to his Retro Topps Now card from the Angels City Connect program.

In order to complete "Now it's Sho-time," players need to go into Mini Seasons with Topps Now Shohei Ohtani in their lineup and score two extra base hits in a single game with that card.

Upon completion, you'll receive one Headliners Set 16 Choice Pack, another great prize compared to the lesser rewards in recent months.
