Marcus Stroman Announced As Canadian Cover Athlete For MLB The Show 18

As soon as he took the field in a Jays uniform back in 2014, it seemed like it was only a matter of time before Marcus Stroman graced the cover for MLB The Show. 2018 will be his year, as San Diego Studios has announced that Stroman will be joining New York Yankees’ phenom Aaron Judge as cover athlete’s for next year’s title. Stroman had a career year for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2017, and was easily the favourite for landing the Canadian cover. Check out the box art for the Canadian version of MLB The Show 18 below:
