Same, last trophy and the something happens to me as well, getting called-up during the off-season. 

 

Someone said use a pitcher but that didn't help, it helped in getting the pitchers trophies but not for getting called-up.

I'm trying getting to triple A, backing up my save then tearing things up. I saw on playstation trophies that the earliest you can be called up is right after the triple A all star game.

It seems it's not a guarantee, but that is what worked for me (I'm the guide writer btw haha). I tried for hours trying to get it through simming. I came up with this idea, and got it first try. Maybe I got lucky haha. Hopefully it works for you! It could work better if you're a position that isn't crowded (I was a catcher).

The AS game part is just my theory. Me and one other member were called up at the same point despite them being a pitcher and me a catcher. I don't feel it was a coincidence. It's either the earliest point or a set point. Another set point could be September 1 as that's when major league rosters expand and a lot of players are called up. So if you don't get called up after the AS game, sim a little further to September and see if that works :)

I made sure I was called up to AAA in the offseason, then played every single game before the all star break and hit over .500. I got called up the day after the all star game like they said, so I guess that is the earliest you can be promoted and get the trophy.

I got it while playing as a Pitcher.  I was called up in my second year with Triple A team. I think my record right before was 5-3 pitched 2 complete Games, and had 1 no hitter. I would think its easier as a Pitcher. Just change your settings to beginner and try being as perfect as possible. if you are a starter you will be skipping a bunch of games so just as long as you nail the games you do play should be no problem.

So I have done 2 characters- one as a hitter and another as a pitcher. Both times I've been called up following Spring Training so it does not pop. Ugh.

Make sure to always save before you enter Spring Training (there's a lot of RNG, since the outcome is never preset). I was always called up during the off season (one time actually offered a contract to be a part of the every day MLB roster without any way to refuse it), so make a couple of back up saves. You'll eventually get lucky where you'll go into the triple-A season red hot, and get called up around the All Star break. By the time I got called up, I was like 80 overall, batting .500 with an insane slugging percentage since all my hits were doubles, triples and homeruns. Tampa Bay (who has drafted me in 3 of my RTTS careers in this game, for some reason) finally traded me to a more appreciative team, and they brought me up mid season in the year 2020 after playing most of the games. I must have spent 6-7 hours on this alone.

 

I really hate the situational-borderline-missable trophies tied to RTTS this year. Making the bigs in any fashion should be treated as a celebration, but somehow this game only ties its trophy to getting called up in a particular fashion that shows a cutscene peculiar to that method of getting called up. I would think it would be more impressive starting out the year on an opening day roster, than towards the middle to the end of the season, but whatever.

I'm about to finish the season in Triple-A so I'm going to save right before spring training. Wish me luck lol

Nothing works to pop this. I am only ever called up at Spring Training. No matter how many back up saves I create, I can’t get myself called up midseason. This is ridiculous.

So after MANY MANY tries I finally got it and the platinum. I created a starting pitcher who was a flamethrower and I had a great Amateur Showcase (My Pitches if you're curious were 4 Seam FB, Changeup, 2 Seam Fastball. Lefty that emulated the same motion as Pat Neshek), then I made 100% certain I was drafted by a team who NEEDED starting pitching. I was luckily drafted by the Cincinnati Reds who's rotation is trash. I upgraded my caps whenever they became available and upped my H/9, K/9/ BB/9 HR/9 as fast as I could. I was called up to AAA in the first year and then was signed to a AAA contract the following year to be a rotation guy. In AAA I played as best as I could in every game up to the all star break and then played two more after it and then was called up to the show. My overall was at about 73 but my "Exceeding Expectations" adjusted overall became an 82. Hence the call up. My ERA was just under 2. record was 10-4 at call up. Hope this helps someone.

You’ve gotta be kidding me. Called up to MLB in May 2019. No trophy. Fresh player.

"I'm Not Gonna Cry" is the silliest trophy name I've ever seen.

I'd say it's more ironic since I'm gonna cry trying to get this damn trophy.

Tips for this, when you sign your 1st contract I suggest a 5yr+ deal. When you get up to triple A make a save and upload it to the cloud. If you make it to the 2nd season and still in triple A make another save and overwrite the old cloud save. Then simulate the season and if they promote you to majors in the offseason reload the cloud save and simulate again and repeat. It really is luck based but eventually you will get called up during the season, just a matter of time. Took me about 4 seasons simulated to be called up as a SS.

I can confirm you can be called up earlier, I got called up a little over a month into the new season (could be injury related though)

FINALLY got this stupid trophy. I know everyone has done it differently, but thought I would post what worked for me:

 

- went as a closer (flamethrower with default pitches; FB, CH, CB)

- turned down my first offer and went to college for one year

- simmed EVERYTHING (including showcases and skipped all training)

- tuned the sliders to make CPU hitting bad (although I'm not sure if this does anything in simulated games)

- focused on my FB stuff (especially velocity), followed by my changeup, secondary pitching stats (K/9 -> BB/9 -> HR/9), then durability and clutch

- after my first year I signed a 10 year contract at 40k/y

- ended up getting called up after the ASB of year 3 (went straight from AA to MLB)

 

So glad to finally get this after numerous attempts :)

This trophy reminds me of "Another Direction" from NHL 13.  It is the only one trophy I need for the Plat (ultra ultra rare).

 

You have to get traded IN-SEASON but nothing is clear on how to do that.  RNG for sure, if you ask for a trade too soon, you are screwed.  If you get traded in the off-season, it does not count like here.  Trying all over again (or from save files) is a major grind as you can't sim forward without being penalized.

 

Deja vu for sure.

I think your thinking of another trophy. This trophy you just have to play once you get called up to AAA and then play every game.

Yeah, I just meant the randomness of trying to time the call-up here in MLB was similar to timing the trade happening in NHL 13.  If either happened in the off-season, you were out of luck.
