Baseball fans are in for a treat this week thanks to the release of MLB The Show 23. A year since the last installment was enough time for San Diago Studios to improve every aspect of the game. The game is not just a high-tech Baseball simulator, it also acts as a trusted player rating source for fans. But who are the highest-rated players in the game? Who are the new additions to the 99 Club in MLB The Show 23? Let’s find out.
All the Players in 99 Club in MLB The Show 23
The 99 Club refers to players who have earned an overall rating of 99 in The Show series. These ratings depend on a number of metrics but players’ performance in the previous season plays a huge role. Here are the five players who have made it to the 99 Club.
- Jacob DeGrom: Texas Ranger
- Mike Trout: Los Angeles Angels
- Shohei Ohtani: Los Angeles Angels
- Paul Goldschmidt: St Louis Cardinals
- Aaron Judge: New York Yankees
Each of these players has had one of their best individual performances this season. Fans of the LA Angels now have the bragging rights of having not one but two players with a 99 rating. Aaron Judge’s record-breaking 62 Home Runs finally pushed him to the hallowed 99 Club. Jacob DeGrom can be proud of this performance last season, now considered to be one of the best pure pitchers in the game. With a National League MVP and a seventh All-Star appearance, Paul Goldschmidt was bound to get the 99 ratings. But there were a handful of great players who just missed the cut. Players like Justin Verlander, Corbin Burnes, and Max Scherzer were just shy of getting the 99 Rating. A strong season is just what they need to make it to the exclusive club.
