– Fixed an issue where users could scout players that are not known to their team.
– There is now a Free Agent tab in the Marketplace of The Show. Marketplace updating will now update player listings and data that have moved from the mlb pool to free agent pool in each Live Roster update.
– Collection screen has free agent tab in Diamond Dynasty.
– Extra Innings is now MORE random, widening the pools of eligible users/DD teams”
Key attribute changes:
Anthony Rizzo is now an 86 overall and a gold tier card
Hanley Ramirez has jumped to a 91 overall and his power increased to 80
Dallas Keuchel increased to an 84 overall
Justin Upton slightly increased to an 88 overall with his power going to an 83
Joe Nathan has dropped to a 77 overall and to a bronze tier card
Remember to pay attention to real life players and their stats. SDS is usually a bit slower to increase attributes, especially for proven players, but once a player has proven that he has progressed/degressed they will not hesitate to change their ratings (See Joe Nathan)
Pay attention to rookies or sophomores especially for more drastic upgrades! Devon Travis and Anthony Gose will be some players to keep an eye on!
