The big news, however, is that the newly called up rookie sensation, Kris Bryant, has finally been added to the online rosters.  This means Bryant can now be used for online rated games, as well as, be used in Diamond Dynasty.   Kris Bryant will start the season at an 81 overall, ranking him 11th overall at his position. Here is a look at his player card, along with his attributes:

The addition of Bryant also means that he will now be playable in Diamond Dynasty and be a part of the Cubs’ collection in order to get Ernie Banks.  Bryant was already going for 25k this afternoon on the market, but that price will surely drop once people acquire him through packs.  It may be a smart investment to stockpile a few of these cards as SDS will be upgrading players throughout the season.  Here is a look at the market from earlier today:

As for the Cubs, they now have a legitimate clean up hitter in their lineup. They move to 20th overall for online rated and are now ranked 17th in contact and 14th in power, respectively.
