Speed Increase RTTS 19

SDS

Hey guys, have a question regarding my Rtts player in MLB 19 The Show. I’ve played about 3 seasons thus far now. I have had plenty of opportunities to upgrade contact, power, fielding, stealing, base running aggression, vision, discipline, etc caps. But no matter what I try I never get a speed cap increase for my player, (Rock Solid Archetype). I’ve quit and reloaded my game 15 different times to change my options but the speed cap increase never appears. Is there a trick or other stat cap I need to increase first..? Getting frustrated being capped at 50 speed. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

This has been a problem since day one with the MLB 19. It has been mentioned here before and SDS did nothing. It is not you and it is in all archetypes.

It is not a bug; it is linked to your archetype. Unless you are an olympic sprinter and running is your bread and butter, most people's top speed is between 18-22, and it pretty much stays the same or deteriorates as you grow older. The archetype reflects that. The way it used to work was you'd be Prince Fielder at 18 and Rickey Henderson at 23, which never happens. It's also why you can improve your stealing ability, as in early in your career you depend on pure speed, but if you learn to study pitchers, you can improve your starts. That attribute reflects that learning curve.

I'm not making this up, it was in the RTTS stream for 18 or 19; guessing 18 since it was the first year of archetypes.

Your right in that was in 18 then the RTTS stream for 19 they said that all attributes will have a max cap of 99

I played with the Anomaly archetype for 19 with a CF. It took until I got to the bigs to ever get a speed cap drill, but then I got them fairly quickly to get from 95-99.

It may depend on other guys in your organization. I played with Texas, and in 19' Delino Deshields was always offering to train my speed.

Thanks for the replies guys. And I don’t think the issue is with not having the appropriate guys on my team to help me train my speed cap. I currently play for the Royals. Who have Adalberto Mondesi, 94 speed and 95 steal as the quickest guy on the team. But there is also Whit Merrifield who has 80 something speed/stealing stats. And there is also one other guy who I can’t remember right now off the top of my head. So it’s not an issue of not having the right guys. Needless to say I always seem to get steal or base aggression cap increases. The reason behind it seems to be a mystery. Thank again.
