There are few things that excite me more than anything that has to do with the start of baseball season for the Mariners. Spring Training, prospect updates, the start of the actual season. It extends to the realm of video games as well though, as MLB The Show 22 comes out on April 5th.
“Wait a minute, how are you releasing the player rankings for the game if it isn’t out yet?”
If you were one of those who took advantage of pre-ordering a special edition of the game, as I did, then it was available to you on March 31st at 9 PM Pacific Time or midnight on the morning of April 1st.
It’s the game I most look forward to every year. My wife knows that we aren’t going to watch shows after the kids go to bed for a while because I’ll be playing this. It happens every year and has for as long as I can remember.
Before I get into actually playing too much of the game, I wanted to list out all of the Mariners Rankings for people who either didn’t get the special edition with the early access, or those who are just curious and want to have them in one spot.
Here are the Mariners Rankings from MLB The Show 22
What I’ve done is gone ahead and list out the rankings from not just Franchise mode but from Diamond Dynasty instead. For those unfamiliar, Franchise is your basic “take over a team and try and win the World Series” mode. Diamond Dynasty (DD) features players as collectible cards that you can insert into your lineup, mixing and matching as you go along. The better players are higher ranked, and therefore, harder/more expensive to acquire.
I’m a big DD guy, so before I get to creating my team and making my way through all the challenges, I’ve put together the list of rankings from both modes. Along the way, I’ll have some thoughts and opinions on what they got right and what they got wrong. Last year, they had omitted some of the top prospects from the Mariners and created some completely fake ones with great ratings. Let’s see if this year is better with the Mariners MLB The Show 22 rankings.
