MLB The Show 21 Roster Update: Release Date for Final Diamond Dynasty Ratings

MLB The Show 21 got things kicked off at launch with biweekly roster updates coming out like clockwork every other Friday afternoon.

As the season started to reach the latter stages, things got spread out and a few jumped to a 3-week interval, until the penultimate roster update came on October 1, 2021 and gave us the final regular season ratings changes.

Now, over a month later, we're set to receive the final MLB The Show 21 Roster Update on Friday, November 5, 2021 at approximately Noon PT.

There could be a teaser going into the reveals, especially with this being the last one, and many are looking to the Postseason programs in-game for ideas of who could go up.

Despite that speculation, we likely won't know any of the official jumps until the half-hour before the reveal when Sony San Diego may do a content stream to coincide with the final update, or they could just send things live at Noon PT without a stream.

New Diamonds Predictions

As always, this final MLB The Show 21 Roster Update will be specific to the Live Series cards in Diamond Dynasty which have had their ratings adjusted throughout the year.

With values of cards spiking when they reach Diamond tier and allowing them to be quicksold for a much higher value, things always focus in on which players might move from Gold to Diamond.

We've taken a look at four of the postseasons key names who are in the right place to be new Diamonds in this MLB The Show 21 Roster Update.

Carlos Correa, Currently 84 OVR, Houston Astros

While the Houston Astros couldn't hold things together at the end and snag a win in the World Series, Carlos Correa was definitely one of their postseason standouts.

With just one point needed to reach the 85 OVR threshold, Correa's 9 RBIs and single home run during the postseason might be able to push him just over the edge into Diamond status.

Adam Duvall, Currently 81 OVR, Atlanta Braves

Even with their World Series victory, few of the Braves players are close enough to the 85 OVR mark while still being beneath it and having shown out during the postseason.

Duvall is likely the closest, and even the 4-point jump could be possible, as he had 13 hits, 10 RBIs, and 3 home runs through the 2021 MLB Postseason.

Will Smith, Currently 84 OVR, Los Angeles Dodgers

Even though the Dodgers didn't make it out of the NLCS, it wasn't from a lack of trying by Will Smith, who capped off an already strong year.

During the postseason, Smith had 11 hits, 4 RBIs, and 3 home runs during his 44 at-bats, and that could be just enough to get him over the hump and into Diamond status.

Rafael Devers, Currently 82 OVR, Boston Red Sox

Finally we have Rafael Devers, who wasn't able to keep his Red Sox from being knocked out of World Series contention by the Astros, but it's worth noting he did receive a 99 OVR Postseason card for his efforts.

With just 44 at-bats, Devers racked up 13 hits, 12 RBIs, and an amazing 5 home runs which could be enough to boost him the necessary three points into Diamond tier.
