A former MVP catcher, a knuckleball-pitching Legend and a phenom Future Star are August rewards in Diamond Dynasty.
Hardware Flashback Joe Mauer, Diamond 95 OVR catcher, is the World Series reward for the August Ranked Season.
Now, you can earn a Stan Musial autographed baseball souvenir in the Wild Card Division, and each division above it has more autographs than previous Ranked Seasons. For instance, the World Series division rewards four baseballs now toward his Immortal Program, which requires a total of 12.
Stubs rewards were increased for the August World Series and Championship Series divisions as well.
Battle Royale Flawless Rewards
Two high-caliber players are now part of the Battle Royale Flawless rewards pool.
All-Star Legend Luis Tiant comes with a mid-90s fastball and a bunch of other slow moving and diving pitches – including a knuckleball!
When it comes to five tool prospects, the Braves may have one of the best Future Stars of the game.
Ronald Acuna Jr. is the second Battle Royale Flawless reward, and his attributes are projected three years into the future.
