It is widely known that a player’s performance can vary due to many different factors. Their pitching may be off, constant strikes may take place, so on and so forth. This is actually represented into the game, as MLB players are being analyzed in real life and time, with the devs tweaking their stats in MLB The Show 21 based on the data gathered.

Which is kind of obvious to say the least.

Player stats and ratings are downloaded right away, so head on to the Diamond Dynasty menu and select the Rosters option.
