MLB 15 The Show News Post

Guest video poster Douglas Veney checks in today with a look at a couple of the new gameplay mechanics in MLB 15 The Show!

In MLB 15 The Show, the smart decisions are what win you the game. The game features a few new mechanics this year that go a long way in helping you execute a great strategy.

At first glance it might appear that "Timing" hitting is gone, but it's been renamed to "Directional" and features a new twist. Players are now able to influence their swing to a variety of directions to perform sacrifice hits, hit & runs, and other plays with much more accuracy.

Defensive shifts are incredibly easy to call, and deliver a fantastic risk/reward factor. Know that your opponent is preparing to squeeze off a bunt? Shift your infield to give your team a better chance at stopping them.

I've been looking and haven't found an answer for this yet, how do you see the power splits for upcoming batters in the quick menus. They only show contact/power vs the current pitcher or they show contact vs L/R in the bullpen menu.

It seems like if I want to see the upcoming hitter's stats vs L/R, I have to go to the stats page and look at each hitter.

Not sure, but one thing that just happened while I was playing turned me off to the game a little. SS Andrelton Simmons of the Braves dove to try and stop a ball from going into the outfield, got up and looked perfectly fine, but the game said he injured his ankle and it could be a season ender. How do you injure your ankle diving to stop a grounder? I used slow-mo replay and nothing, so if injuries to certain body parts are purely random, then that worries me.
