(670 The Score) One of baseball's most exciting players is getting some more shine in the national spotlight.

Cubs shortstop Javier Baez has graced the cover of "MLB The Show '20," Playstation announced Monday. 

"I am so honored and excited to be on the cover of MLB The Show 20," Baez said in a statement. "I’ll never forget how it felt when I saw myself in the game for the first time (even as a backup!). It was so surreal. Still, it’s one thing to see your virtual self, but it’s completely next level to be on the cover of a game you’ve played and love."
