MLBPA Question

In light of the recent signing of Mariners 1B Evan White to a major league contract extension, will he appear in the game with a face and proper MLB Photo?

For those of you who don't know the story, White hasn't played above AA, but he has now signed an MLB deal, been added to the 40-man roster, and will be the Mariners opening day first baseman. He HAS signed his agreement with the MLBPA.

So, as I already stated, does this mean he has the green light to have a picture and face scan in the 20?

Re: MLBPA Question

It has been my understanding that they have to acquire one day of service time at the major league level before they can be added to the game.

This is correct. Also the players rights can be purchased (Through negotiations with said player or players) as well even without and at bat or inning pitched. I.E. Ohtani.

Also re: Face Scans, SDS has said in the past that the face scans they take during Spring Training go into the game the following year, not the current one. So any face scan made of a player this upcoming Spring would not be in the game until Show '21.

They have said that in the past but I think that was disproved by Guerrero last year. I think itís an under promise/over deliver type scenario.

That's true, I forgot about him.

That's one of many reasons this game needs a player DNA feature similar to 2K.

Re: MLBPA Question

is he (White) a top 5 prospect? I know he was #100 last spring training but if he isn't top 5 come 2020 spring training I dont look for him to A.) be on the default roster, B.) have a face scan, but there isn't anything stopping Sony negotiating with him individually IF they thought he was worth their while. Back in 2013 or 2014 Oakland's Hiro Nakajima was on the Show default roster (dont know if he was scanned into the game but they definitely had a real photo of him in game) and never spent even 1 day on the 25 man roster IIRC
