MLB The Show 20 Diamond Dynasty Live Series 2 Event Fred Mcgriff

PLATE MENACE: Fred McGriff presents huge problems to right-handed pitchers

Fred Mcgriff is a huge addition to Diamond Dynasty, and is immediately competitive with the best first basemen available.

Mcgriff's best strengths are his Power and Contact vs R at 105 and 100 respectively, and his 98 Durability. These stats make Mcgriff an absolute nightmare for righties, and he's still pretty great against lefties as well.

Mcgriff will do almost all of his damage at the plate, with fairly average defensive stats and below average baserunning.

JACK OF ALL TRADES: Kenny Lofton is a threat anywhere he goes, making him a very valuable pickup in Diamond Dynasty

Kenny Lofton is another legendary name added to the Diamond Dynasty roster. He can stand up with some of the best center field options available now, and is a very multi-faceted talent.

Lofton's best stats are his 113 Contact vs R, 99 Contact vs L, 99 Steal, and 99 BR AGG. Lofton brings top tier stats to each facet of his game, making in a threat at the plate, in the field, and running the bags.

He'll slot wonderfully into any kind of Diamond Dynasty lineup.
