MLB The Show 21 Roster Update (6/11/21) – New Diamond Players

Movers, shakers, and losers.

Diamond Dynasty is interesting in that sometimes the cards you spent thousands of Stubs on end up losing their diamond status. On the other hand, sometimes you can invest in cheap cards, have a player take off in the real world, and find that card is suddenly worth a fortune. Thankfully, MLB The Show 21 doesn’t push roster updates all that frequently, just every other week. In this guide, we’ll take a look at who has found themselves promoted, demoted, and who has shifted the most.

Biggest Movers – Diamond Dynasty

Wondering who has gained or lost the most ground? Here are the top five players who either are now bronze or were bronze before being demoted from the metallic rarities.

Eric Haase Tigers 70 11 59
Cole Sulser Orioles 65 10 55
Nick Sandlin Cleveland 69 9 60
Patrick Wisdom Cubs 72 8 64
Adam Plutko Orioles 72 7 65
