Aaron Sanchez Will Be On the Canadian Cover of MLB The Show ’17


Well here’s something notable, though I don’t really have a whole lot to say about it: according to Sony’s official Playstation blog, Aaron Sanchez will follow in the grand tradition of Brett Lawrie (and Josh Donaldson, and Jose Bautista — I’m pretty sure, though I can assure you I don’t remember), and will have his likeness featured in the cover art on the latest edition of MLB The Show.

Y’know, as you can see above.

Scott Boras doin’ work!

I took a quick spin to Amazon to see if the game is already available for pre-order, and it is. However there are a pair of options: the Standard Edition, for $79.96, which shows stand-in box art that looks like what we see Aaron on above, and the $89.96 MVP Edition, which doesn’t show the art. I’m sure someone better versed in vid games than I am (i.e. literally anyone) could tell you whether Sanchez will be on both or what, but from a quick Google search it seems that different pictures of Donaldson adorned the boxes of the different versions last year, so… that’s probably what they’ll do again.

Hey, and here’s a video from the Playstation Blog on some of the features of the game, because… why not?
