I can’t believe that I forgot they give you a pass on injuries for MLB The Show Diamond Dynasty. This is why I spaced on Ken Giles, and that he would still be included. What’s more, is he is the top-ranked Mariner, and the only gold player as well. MONTERO IS A 61. Wow.

Prospects

Yeah, not really any of the prospects on here. Kinds makes sense, since the big names will come out as super cards, or they’re waiting for them to be called up.

Are there a ton of Mariners players that you should use on your Diamond Dynasty team in MLB The Show? No, there aren’t. As you build your team, there are definitely some that you can snag to use for a while though, especially if you think they are going to play well in the real world. Remember, Diamond Dynasty cards get weekly temporary adjustments, and occasionally get permanent adjustments too if a player is doing well enough. *Cough* Ty France *Cough*.

What stands out about these rankings? What did the game get wrong? There are a couple of them that stood out to me…
