MLB The Show 16 Dae-Ho Lee

The first in-season roster update for MLB The Show 16 was primarily utilized to add in rookies who had made their Major League debut. In the second update, which went out today, more rookies have been introduced into the game.

After being left out last week, Dae-Ho Lee has made his way into the game, however for some reason placed on the Mariners’ AA team rather than the MLB squad. The highest rated new rookie is Brett Nicholas of the Rangers, while Mallex Smith and Nomar Mazara are the only two to get A Potential grades. Though sweeping ratings changes have not been made a few players have been affected this week.
