MLB The Show 21 – Game Update 15 Details

It was only a few short weeks ago that Game Update 14 was released for MLB The Show 21, but now the developers are back with yet another update for all platforms.

Unfortunately, fans will be disappointed if they’re expecting new content or any big changes in the August 27 MLB The Show 21 update.

According to the official patch notes, the latest update is mainly for bug fixes. Players should now experience fewer freezes when in the bullpen menu and under certain circumstances such as when a pitch hits the dirt below the catcher.

One of the other interesting features in the latest MLB The Show 21 update is the new daily cap of 35,000XP. The developers have noted that this shouldn’t be an achievable limit for players to reach and aims to stop exploitative gameplay. More details can be found in the patch notes below.

  • Fixed a freeze that would occur when a pitch hit the dirt below the catcher
  • Players will now be notified when a pitcher pinch hit for another pitcher
  • Fixed an issue where players could get stuck in the bullpen menu
  • We have implemented a daily cap of 35,000 XP earned through gameplay. This cap shouldn’t be reached through “normal” means of play – this is intended to combat large amounts of XP games from out of the ordinary or exploitative gameplay. We are committed to increasing this cap in the future if needed. (The cap will adjust accordingly during double XP events.)


  • Players will now have the option to initiate a grief report in the pause menu by pressing L1
