Minor Leaguers Are In MLB The Show 2020, No Pay Needed

When the MLB The Show 2020 video game is released next month, it will attempt to include full minor league rosters for the first time. Users will be able to pitch with MacKenzie Gore and promote Wander Franco straight to the majors from high Class A, or play with either player in the minors.

For the casual fan, such an addition is likely to barely noticed, but for more hardcore fans, the presence of not just top prospects but all minor leaguers will be another reason to buy the game….

Minor league players not on 40-man rosters will not receive compensation, however. When they sign their first pro contract with their MLB team, they sign away their rights to profit from video games, baseball cards and other uses of their publicity rights.

How does it work for OOTP? They include high school prospects in the game as draftable players, even though they haven't signed pro contracts yet.
