We expected the biweekly format seen for MLB The Show 21 would continue this year, and the latest Roster Update did confirm in-game they are planning attribute updates every two weeks.

They'll continue to do a smaller Roster Update on off weeks that includes transactions, new players, and position changes.

We expect another full Roster Update to land on the following dates:

  • May 27
  • June 10
  • June 24
  • July 8

If these ring true, it would also bring things close to All-Star Week from July 15 to July 19 including the Home Run Derby on July 18, 2022.

Last year we saw some new cards and ratings updates timed around those events, so the regular schedule may shift slightly when those arrive.

We've got more details here on the current confirmed Diamond Dynasty Schedule for future content releases.

How to use each player rating update to invest in Stubs

While veteran players already know what to expect, new players may not realize how valuable each MLB The Show 22 Roster Update can be.

Flipping cards before and after these player rating changes to the Live Series can be a massive way to earn Stubs.

Last year, that was made a bit easier by the fact that cards only increased in quick sell value when they jumped between tiers (Silver to Gold, Gold to Diamond, etc).

This meant the hunt was always on for any cards near the top of the Gold threshold that could jump to Diamond, as players could invest in them and see a major return by quick selling after they jumped to Diamond in a Roster Update.

WORK THE MARKET: Investments are a risk, but sometimes they have a big payoff

Things will be a bit more challenging this year, but there's even more potential as they've changed the quick sell values to increase at every point rather than only at the tiers, as seen above compared to last year's values.

If you spot a player that's thriving in the MLB but seems to be lower rated than you believe they deserve, that could be a valuable investment in Diamond Dynasty.

It's always a risk, but if you get several of a card and it sees a major rating boost, you can easily quick sell in bulk and reap tons of Stubs to use in Diamond Dynasty.
