Another month of America’s pastime has come and gone, and within MLB The Show 21 there’s soon going to be another Player of The Month card coming to Diamond Dynasty. 

MLB The Show has made leaps and bounds over the years, and this time around they made massive news, as it’s the first time the game was released on Xbox. The game bolsters a series of game modes, but none are more popular than Diamond Dynasty.

The equivalent of FIFA’s Ultimate Team, MLB The Show 21 features a ton of weekly programs to unlock new cards, but every month they release a special Player of The Month card, for the best performing player in the majors from last month.


These cards are highly sought after, as players are still using April’s POTM, Byron Buxton. So, let’s take a look at who are the recipients of June’s POTM cards.

Lightning card – June 2021

The king of the crop of June’s POTM cards is 98 OVR Kyle Schwarber of the Washington Nationals! The big slugger racked in 16 HR in just 18 games in an insane stretch towards the tail-end of June, and his new Diamond card is going to be a monster one, to say the least.

With 125 power against right-handed pitchers, and 100 against left-hander pitchers, you are going to rake HR’s regardless of who you are facing.
