MLB The Show 23 – Best teams to rebuild in Franchise mode

There are quite a few good choices for teams that could use a good rebuild in MLB The Show 23. While teams like the Mets, Yankees, and Dodgers are set up for long-term growth, some others are on the rise themselves.

1. Baltimore Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles are a team on the rise in the MLB. While they have the unfortunate division situation where they are going up against teams like the Yankees, Rays, and Blue Jays, they have a wealth of young talent, headlined by their catcher, Adley Rutchman, and center fielder, Cedric Mullins. They don’t have any talent that blows you away right now, but they are a few trades and signings away from being a force.

2. Miami Marlins

The Miami Marlins are another team that is on the rise but is also stuck in a very tough division with the Mets, Phillies, and Braves. They have one of the best ace pitchers in all of baseball in Sandy Alcantara, which is a weapon pretty much every team would covet. From there, their staff takes a step back, but if you are able to fill out the starting five and get some nice pieces to surround Jazz Chisholm in the lineup, you could have a quality team.

3. Texas Rangers

The real-life Texas Rangers have made some major signings in recent offseasons to acquire strong talent in Jacob deGrom, Marcus Semien, and Corey Seager. They also have strong power potential in Adolis Garcia and good contact hitting in Nathaniel Lowe. They don’t have great fielders, that is for sure, but if you can fill them out a little better, they can contend in the AL West, where the Houston Astros are a big problem, but there is potential to go head-to-head with everyone else.

4. Chicago White Sox

The Chicago White Sox had a disaster of a year in 2022, but they still have a roster that has potential. Dylan Cease, Lance Lynn, Michael Kopech, and Lucas Giolito make a strong starting five that won’t require too much adjustment, and their offense has good hitters with Tim Anderson, Eloy Jimenez, and Andrew Benintendi. Like the Rangers, their defense is not great, but you can fight for the AL Central against the Guardians and Twins.

5. Milwaukee Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers have one of the best starting rotations in baseball with Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff, and Freddy Peralta. You then back that up with closer Devin Williams and have a lethal pitching staff. However, where they fall short is their offense, and they have a massive blackeye with the major regression of Christian Yelich, who is under contract until 2029. If you are looking to rebuild this team, you need to find a way to trade that awful contract away, but if you can draft and find quality replacements, you have a team that can compete for the NL Central.
