The cover athlete for MLB The Show 20 has an official cover athlete, and the winner is Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez. Baez has slowly turned into the face of the Cubs organization. He will be featured on baseball’s most popular video game presented by San Diego Studios.
Despite the Chicago Cubs not making the postseason this year, Baez had another incredible season. The 26-year-old infielder posted an impressive .281 batting average. He also knocked in 29 home runs and 85 RBIs.
The cover may bring speculation to the 2011 first-round draft pick. Javier Baez faces arbitration this offseason, and the Chicago Cubs may begin a rebuild. The Cubs elected not to resign long time manager Joe Maddon after the regular season, and some other core players of the 2016 World Series team. This marks the first Chicago Cub featured on the titles cover since its beginning in 1997.
