MLB The Show 21 Diamond Dynasty April Monthly Awards were released on May 5 for the best performing players from the first month of the new season.
Diamond Dynasty is off to a popular start even amid server issues on San Diego Studios' end. This is the first year MLB The Show has been released on Xbox systems and fans wonder if that's causing the constant server issues. SDS has remained committed to improving performance and stability, so fans should rest easy knowing the developer is working on it.
The April Monthly Awards program features nine players including seven Diamonds players can earn. The program is highlighted by an 89 overall Shohei Ohtani, a 92 overall Vladimir Guerrero Jr., a 93 Corbin Burnes and the big prize of a 95 overall Byron Buxton.
