With the 2020 MLB regular season coming to a close on Saturday, ‘MLB The Show 20’ provided their last roster and ratings update for the regular season on September 25.

As we have been doing, let’s take a look at the players who saw their live series cards go up or down a level (those who went from common to bronze, or bronze to common, are not included).

All of the rating updates can be found at The Show Nation.
