  • MLB The Show 24: Predictions For The Upcoming Roster Attributes Update 4 In Season 2 - Possible New Diamond Tier Players

    Posted: Jun 27, 2024

    As you all know, Attributes-focused Roster Updates in MLB The Show 24 Season 2 will take place on Friday, June 28th, making this the 4th Attributes Update of the season.

    Roster Attributes Update 4 takes into account players’ real-life performance to upgrade or downgrade their OVR and attributes. With the update approaching, let’s predict which players’ attributes and ratings will change in this Roster Update, and which players will reach Diamond tier!

    Not only will this bring us more fun, but more importantly, if you have a new card that is promoted to Diamond tier, you will be able to earn a lot of MLB The Show 24 Stubs or use it to upgrade your team. Let’s get started!

    Garrett Crochet

    As the 11th overall pick in the professional sports draft, Garrett Crochet is under a lot of pressure, and despite being a 94 overall card, his career has not gotten off to a great start.

    On a team with an AL-worst 4.78 ERA, Crochet pitched to a 3.25 ERA, which is consistent with his 6-6 record. More importantly, Crochet’s 124 strikeouts are second only to Tyler Glasnow in MLB rankings. For now, his appearance in Diamond tier of Attributes Update may be the best chance for fans to see his potential.

    Steven Kwan

    Next, open your roster and get ready to add a name, Steven Kwan. Kwan is 15-for-32 in spring training with two walks and zero strikeouts, as his ability to get his bat to any pitch is simply amazing.

    Not to mention he hit the ball in his first 26 swings this season. Although he is not good at hitting home runs, he has hit 9 hits in 19 at-bats, including 2 doubles and 1 triple. He didn’t hit the ball all over the place, nor did he play for extra bases, and he showed the patience and selectivity of a veteran.

    I will also tell you that this player has reached base 15 times in four games with an on-base percentage of .789. His batting average is .692 and his slugging percentage is 1.000. And according to ESPN data, he has reached base 15 times in the first four games of his career, which is the most played by a major league player since 1901. Therefore, he is very likely to appear in this Diamond tier player card list!

    Royce Lewis

    Minnesota Twins have some promising players in Bullpen and Infielder lineup, and at the top of the list is Royce Lewis. The 24-year-old American is entering his third season with Twins, and his infielding abilities are only the tip of the iceberg of his potential.

    In MLB The Show 24, Lewis has good infielding metrics, as well as good Reacting and Arm Accuracy, but lacks the durability to keep him going for longer than nine innings.

    Offensively, Lewis performs better against right-handed pitchers, where he can use his contact or power swing and change his strategy to deceive opponents.

    He also scored an 80 in Batting Clutch, making him an indispensable player in Twins batting order. If his Plate Discipline and Vision stats can improve in this Attributes Update, Lewis could become one of the better hitters in American League.

    Tyler O’Neill

    St. Louis Cardinals have a unique skill in developing players, and center fielder Tyler O’Neill is one of them. The player has played in the major leagues for multiple seasons and has won two Gold Glove Awards.

    Tyler O’Neill’s offensive and defensive attributes are mostly pretty average, with his 82 power and 84 durability against left-handers being his top marks. But one area where he does excel is in speed, which is already at 98. He’s lightning fast and can cover a lot of ground on the field and bases. I think his other attributes should be improved to get a better balance. What do you think? We’ll see.

    Daniel Hudson

    Many players will convert their extra closers to relief pitchers. This isn’t necessarily a bad idea, but it puts extra pressure on the bullpen, as true relief pitchers need to be able to handle multiple innings. And Daniel Hudson is a quality bridge between starter and closer.

    His three-digit H/9, K/9, and Pitching Clutch are all incredible, even for other top relief pitchers. Looking at his other pitching stats, every attribute except stamina is at least 85. Therefore, he’s a no-brainer on my Diamond Players list, at least.

    Clayton Kershaw

    The 36-year-old Clayton Kershaw shows no signs of rustiness as he wraps up his 16th season with Los Angeles Dodgers. The veteran starting pitcher has 13 wins in 24 starts, his highest mark in the past five seasons.

    Kershaw’s perfect Clutch Pitching stats and solid distribution between H/9, K9, and BB/9 categories make him a well-rounded and versatile pitcher who still has plenty of energy. With Kershaw’s services, Dodgers might be able to bring World Series back to Los Angeles.

    That’s my prediction for the player attribute changes and new diamond player cards in Roster Attributes Update 4. What do you think? Do you have any better picks?

    If you feel a player is still performing well and has a good chance of improving, go ahead and try to invest in them. However, be careful not to over-invest, as there’s always a chance they’ll underperform for a few games and that could cause their rating to drop. Let’s wait and see!

  • MLB The Show 24: What Can We Expect In Season 2? - Release Date, New Changes And More

    Posted: Jun 07, 2024

    As we all know, Ultimate Team mode has undergone some major adjustments because of the introduction of Seasons mechanic, bringing new fun to players throughout the game lifecycle. With MLB The Show 24 Season 2 about to begin, Diamond Dynasty is expected to usher in some exciting new changes.

    In fact, after the end of Chapter 1, the developers listened to some player feedback and said that they would make some core changes to the way XP Reward Path works in Season 2, which will make it easier for ordinary players with limited time to get started.

    Here, we will talk about all the details we know so far about the upcoming new content in MLB The Show 24 Season 2. Without further ado, let’s get started!

    Start & End Date

    The start date of MLB The Show 24 Season 2 has been confirmed as June 7, 2024. The expected time is 12pm PST (3pm ET / 8pm BST).

    Once the season goes live, it is expected to last approximately 12 weeks, just like Season 1. The current expected end date for Season 2 is August 29, 2024, but this is subject to change.

    If the previously announced schedule holds, Season 3 will last until November 22. With the update to Season 2, we’re guessing that Season 4 will most likely be the last season of MLB The Show 24. So this will be the last hurrah for MLB this year as fans once again turn their attention to MLB The Show 25.

    Changes To XP Reward Path

    While Seasons mechanic originally introduced in MLB The Show 23 was a welcome move as many complained about the impact of Power Creep in previous years, this implementation in Diamond Dynasty has not been well received.

    The developers heard strong criticism from players about the time it took to earn cards in Season 1 XP Reward Path, and they decided to make changes in Season 2.

    This XP Reward Path in Season 2 will allow players to progress faster. After the release of Season 2, multiple Diamond Dynasty modes will offer over 200,000 XP. They will also be launching Double XP Weekends starting on June 7th, where the game XP cap will double to maximize all the time players have as they enter the new season.

    Wild Card Slots Mechanic

    With the start of Season 2, Wild Card Slots mechanic will go live in Diamond Dynasty. Cards marked as Core can be used in every season without issue. Unfortunately, S1 cards will now only become part of a valid Season 2 lineup if used in a Wild Card Slot. But all cards marked as S2 will be eligible during Season 2.

    It’s worth noting that Ranked Solo will always have a Season restriction, and sometimes the same requirements are enforced in Conquest, Mini Seasons, Battle Royale, and Events.

    However, Ranked Co-Op, Play vs Friends, Play vs CPU, and Casual Head to Head will remain unrestricted and allow lineups to use cards from any season. What’s more, there are additional Wild Card Slots that can be unlocked in Season 2 XP Reward Path.

    Tons Of New Players Available

    In addition, Team Affinity Program will introduce many new players in Season 2, and Chapter 1 is expected to bring 30 new 89 OVR cards.

    New Cornerstone Cards will be released at the beginning of the season, and players can use these cards to build their own teams, as they provide attribute upgrades to the team. If you want to get these cards early, it is crucial to stock up on enough MLB The Show 24 Stubs in advance.

    Meanwhile, Season Awards program will continue in Season 2, which has introduced new cards every week since the game’s release.

    Season 2 will also pay tribute to three legendary players who are set to be inducted into National Baseball Hall of Fame. The developers have confirmed that a ton of content will be released to celebrate, so we can expect a show or event centered on these players.

    New Negro Leagues Storylines

    While we’re here, we have to talk about the unsung history of Negro Leagues. Prior to release, the developers confirmed that Season 2 would offer a total of ten Negro Leagues Storylines. With the latest update and the new Season of Diamond Dynasty coming soon, the last three Negro Leagues have also been added to the game.

    It must be said, however, that MLB The Show 24 did not offer all ten of this year’s Negro Leagues Storylines at launch, but rather slowly rolled them out after the global release date.

    Players can unlock 85 OVR versions of each player by completing these Negro Leagues Storylines. While 85 OVR may not be ideal for some players at this point, the upcoming Season 2 of Diamond Dynasty also means that specific cards from Season 1 are no longer valid unless used with Wild Card Slots.

    These are core cards that are available year-round, so they are good team investments to level up in parallel to higher levels. You’ll also earn some Bat skins, Uniforms, Stadiums, XP, and Stubs for completing these storylines.

    For those looking to beef up their roster while completing Season 1 challenges and accumulating XP before Season 2 begins, all Negro League cards unlocked in Storylines are now buffed to 99 OVR until Diamond Dynasty season begins. So, check them out now!

    That’s all we know about the new content available in Season 2. Knowing this will give you a head start in the new season!
