Blake Snell is the 2018 Cy Young Award winner for the American League, and one of the brightest upcoming pitchers in baseball today. And he’s also one of 30 participants in MLB’s The Show 20 Players League for currently quarantined Major League Baseball players. In just four MLB seasons, Snell has become one of the best in the game with a 10.3 Career WAR and 10.4 strikeouts per nine innings, and he’ll be competing with some of the best on the game controllers throughout this tournament.
The tournament consists of a player from each of MLB’s teams playing three-inning games against each other in a 29-game regular season, with somewhere between three and five games being played a day by each of the participants.
The contest postseason is scheduled to begin April 30 with eight players qualifying for the best-of-three rounds that will be a Division Series and Championship Series, and a five-game World Series played on May 2.
Each player is using Twitch to stream their daily contests. Below you can watch all of Gallo’s matchups on his Twitch stream. You can also follow along with his results, as well as the results of all players, right here.
The MLB The Show 20 Players League is a fun way for fans to see their favorite players competing away from the field. With each player being streamed as he’s in action, you can get to know the guys away from the game as well, with players freely showing their competitive nature and personalities so far during this digital season.
