MLB The Show 21 – Road to The Show: How to Get Promoted to Majors Quickly
Creating your own player and progressing through the MLB minor leagues: The Show 21 can be intimidating at first glance, but luckily there are some great tips to help you get to the Majors fast!
MLB The Show 21 features one of the best career modes among major sports titles. Much of this is due to the different routes players will take to create the Major Leagues and the customization options they contain.
Road to The Show this year has taken a different approach from previous releases, as players will be invited to replicate superstar Shohei Ohtani’s hybrid playstyle.
But, there are a few tricks that you can use in the game in order to get into the big leagues as soon as possible.
Road to The Show Promotion Tips
Like any other title in the franchise, your created player will begin their journey into the Miners. Specifically, AA which is the lowest point of any team’s farm system that The Show is replicating. Along the way, you’ll need to prove your worth to your team in order to get promoted.
When you first start out, you’ll be asked if you want to continue with the pitcher / positional player combination, but through our testing we’ve found that it takes a bit longer than choosing one or the other.
Here are some tips for getting players into the Majors quickly.
Choose a team that needs the position you want
You will have the choice of selecting the team you want to be drafted into and a good tip is to choose a team that needs a player in the position you are playing in. Take the Detroit Tigers or the Baltimore Orioles, for example, they’re the two young teams, with plenty of places available for pitching and position players.
This will get you up the ranks faster if you play well, and it could lead to a promotion within a year or so.
Use perks to increase your overall score
Over the course of the game, you will unlock certain perks and archetypes for your player, and you will also have the option to purchase perks in the Community Market.
These drastically affect some of your in-game notes and, using a combination of some such as speed, power, and control, can dramatically increase your overall.
The higher your player’s rating, the more likely your franchise is to call you into the MLB. Usually it will take around the mid 70s to 80s for your player to be called up, so not too long if you equip the right perks.
The tips above will more than likely increase your chances of reaching MLB level, and you will find that the real game starts when your created player reaches the big leagues!
