Going along the rebuild route within MLB The Show 21’s Franchise mode is a great way to see your team develop, but snagging some of the top prospects is how you’re going to be able to achieve this feat.
While most players often enjoy MLB The Show‘s online mode, Diamond Dynasty, there’s a large number of players who still love Road to The Show, and Franchise mode. The latter is the classic team-based game mode, where you’ll take the role of a General Manager of an MLB club, and you’ll be tasked with leading to a championship.
Instead of taking control of a contending team right away like the Los Angeles Dodgers or the Chicago White Sox, it’s often better to pick one of the rebuilding teams, as you’ll get to witness players grow and emerge as superstars.
If you’re taking this route, we’re going to run over the best players you should be trading for within Franchise.
