After waiting an extra week, MLB The Show 22 roster updates are finally back. These roster updates usually take place every other Friday.

Normally players look out for the players increasing from gold to diamond, but today we are here to talk about the players who have been struggling as of late and are getting downgraded.

MLB The Show 22 July 15 Roster Update: 5 Downgrade Predictions

#1 Willy Adames #27 - SS / Milwaukee Brewers

After having a great season last year, Adames has been struggling this year. On the season, he is only hitting .215. Despite the low average, he is still maintaining his power with 18 home runs. Since the last roster update, Adames is hitting .242 with three home runs, 12 RBI's and 18 strikeouts. Adames is currently an 80 overall, and after this update, may drop down to silver.

#2 Joey Gallo #13 - RF / New York Yankees

Joey Gallo has had a rough year all around. The power hitter is just not hitting the ball at all. On the year, Gallo has a .166 average with only 10 home runs. Since the last roster update, Gallo's poor performance has only continued. He has hit .114 with one home run and 15 strikeouts. Gallo was a diamond at one point last year, but after this roster update, Gallo may be dropped down to a bronze rarity.

#3 Taylor Rogers #17 - CP / San Diego Padres

Rogers is our first player who we think is going to drop from the diamond rarity. Since the last roster update, Rogers has been very inconsistent. In five games, he has two saves and two blown saves. In 5.2 innings, he has allowed seven runs on 13 hits. His ERA in that time period is an 11.12. It would not be surprising to see Rogers drop down to a gold after tomorrow’s update.

#4 James Karinchak #99 - RP / Cleveland Guardians

Karinchak made his season debut just ten days ago and has only made four appearances. But those appearances have not been that well. Overall, we will give him the benefit of the doubt since he is just returning, but regardless he may drop down from gold to silver in this roster update. In his four outings, he has a 5.40 ERA with eight strikeouts and four walks. His performance will most likely improve as the year goes on, but for now, he should drop to silver.

#5 Tommy Edman #19 - SS/2B / St. Louis Cardinals

Our final prediction and our second diamond player to be downgraded is Tommy Edman. Edman is a great player don't get us wrong, but since the last roster update, he hasn't been doing as well. He has a .188 AVG with no home runs and only four RBIs. He also isn't getting on base with only one walk and an OBP at .197. After tomorrow, Edman will most likely drop from diamond, but don't be surprised to see him back there again later in the year.
