MLB The Show 19 Confirms Bryce Harper Cover After Phillies Signing

While there are many details missing from what's going on in MLB The Show 19, one of the big missing pieces was what the cover art would be. We now know that the cover was essentially hanging in the balance at this point because Sony Interactive Entertainment chose Bryce Harper as the cover athlete for the game. However, they chose him at a really weird time in his life, as he left the Washington Nationals at the end of last season and became a free agent looking for a team. It's kinda hard to stick a player on a game without team representation, especially when you're working with the MLB. But that all changed after word came out Harper officially signed with the Philadelphia Phillies this week, and Sony rushed their new cover art out this week.

Yeah, it's a little on the fly, but it's no different than other sports games where you just see an athlete posing in uniform. They even updated the roster to have him on the team before MLB The Show 19 is released on March 26th for the PS4.
