MLB The Show 23 player ratings Diamond Dynasty includes the top players like Aaron Judge, Mike Trout, and Shohei Ohtani. Aaron Judge has a 99 overall rating.

The player ratings are a culmination of their attributes in batting, pitching, and fielding. Baseballers with the best ratings have good statistics in their playing positions, and some can also be two-way players. These attributes include Control, Duralbitiy, and Plate Discipline.

San Diego Studio is responsible for the player ratings, which in turn are dependent on the athlete's performance for their season. A player who performed well in the previous season will automatically see his rating increase. 

60 is the average rating for the MLB players in the MLB The Show franchises. A player with a 75 rating is very good in baseball, and someone with an 85+ is a superstar.

Ramone Russell, the game developer, stated to MLB that they would prefer to undershoot their players' ratings since they could improve on them. However, overshooting someone would eventually result in backing down, which Russell did not like.
