As ‘MLB The Show 20’ has been doing every week since the beginning of the season, another roster update with player rating adjustments came out on September 11.

Here are the players who went up or down a level (those who went from common to bronze, or bronze to common, are not included). In this week’s update, four players joined the diamond club for the first time in this year’s game.

All the updated player ratings can be found at The Show Nation.

The past two Wednesdays have been special for Duvall as he hit three home runs in each of those games while combining to drive in 14 runs. According to MLB.com, he became the first Braves player ever to have multiple three-homer games.

Bronze to Silver

  • Devin Williams, Brewers (RP) - 72 to 79

Expect Williams to have his rating continue climbing if he keeps up the remarkable season that he is having (in 17 innings, he has given up just one run, four hits, and struck out 35 hitters).

  • Carlos Santana, Indians (1B) - 80 to 77

Sanchez hit 34 home runs last year, but it has been an atrocious year at the plate for him in 2020 (.121 batting average).
