HEAVY HITTERS: Who needs a few good batters on their Diamond Dynasty?

Here are a few players that you could target in the MLB The Show 22 Diamond Dynasty Marketplace:

  • Pablo Sandoval - 3B - 86 OVR (16K Stubs)
  • Byron Buxton - CF - 86 OVR (14K Stubs)
  • Jose Altuve - 2B - 85 OVR (14K Stubs)

Sandoval is a wonderful contact hitter at 123 for Contact L and 91 for Contact R. Sandoval isn't very fast though, so you might want to use a baserunner for him.

Speaking of baserunners, Buxton is a sneakily good hitter, but once he's on base is when he'll earn his keep on your Diamond Dynasty team. Buxton has 98 Speed with 79 Stealing. At 14K Stubs, he's an absolute steal, especially in the outfield.

Altuve has the best of both worlds and can be upgraded from an 85 OVR to an 87 OVR. He's got 80 Contact R, 75 Contact L, and 80 Power R. He's got a 67 rating for Speed with 36 for Stealing. He's also a solid second baseman to have.


All three of these MLB The Show 22 Diamond Dynasty players will make your lineup much better.
