MLB The Show 22’s Road to the Show allows players the unique opportunity to create a ballplayer from scratch and lead them up through the minors to become MLB superstars. Without question, one of the more specialized positions to choose is a catcher. So, here are the best teams to join as a catcher in MLB The Show 22’s Road to the Show.
Catchers are undoubtedly one of the more underappreciated positions in baseball. Not only are they the “field general” responsible for handling the pitcher and calling pitches, but their job is also entirely reliant on the pitcher’s performance. That’s why your team choice as a catcher is arguably just as important as your ability to perform in the game.
MLB The Show 22: Best Teams to Join as a Catcher in RTTS
Here are the three best teams to join as a catcher in MLB The Show 22’s Road to the Show:
- Washington Nationals
- Baltimore Orioles
- Houston Astros
The absolute best team to choose if you are a catcher in MLB The Show 22’s Road to the Show is the Washington Nationals. While ‘The Nats’ are by no means a World Series contender, they still have solid talent on the roster and are far better than the other teams on this list.
Their starting catcher, Keibert Ruiz, also carries a lowly 74 OVR, which is a pretty easy rating to beat to steal the starting job. The starting pitchers in DC aren’t awful either, so you should have no problem calling pitches for the organization either.
It’s no secret that the Baltimore Orioles are one of the worst teams in MLB The Show 22, with various holes spread throughout their roster. However, they also have the worst starting catcher in the league in Jacob Nottingham, who carries an OVR rating of 74. As long as your overall rating is higher than this, you can claim the starting job for ‘The O’s” with ease. That makes this team a great option to catapult your baseball career as a catcher in Road to the Show.
Last but certainly not least, there’s the Houston Astros. Perhaps the most enticing thing about joining the Astros is that they are the closest team in terms of contending for an MLB championship. While they don’t need a ton of help on the field, they have an obvious hole to fill at the catcher position, with their starter holding a 75 OVR. So, if your goal is to win a World Series as fast as possible at the catcher position, then your best choice is the Astros.
