Much like in previous months, the start of the new month means that a few new Evolution players have been added in MLB The Show 21. For August, former All-Star reliever Joe Nathan and current Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner are the two new Evolution players. Users can work towards acquiring a 96 OVR Signature series card of Turner, and here’s how you can do just that.

To start, you will need to complete Daily Moments challenges in the August Daily Moments program. There will be 31 chances this month to complete a daily challenge, and for most days, completing the challenge will yield one point toward the August program. However, there will be random times that two points will be up for grabs, so you will definitely want to get the daily challenge done on those days.

You will need to get at least 10 points in the August Daily Moments program to start the Justin Turner player program. What’s the reasoning for this? At 10 points, MLB The Show players will unlock a choice pack of two cards. One is a 68 OVR Turner rookie card, and the other is a Joe Nathan rookie card. You will need the Turner rookie card to unlock the Stage 1 moments and start his program.

If you don’t choose the Turner card with that pack, don’t worry about it. A second Evolution Choice Pack can be unlocked at 15 points. So, if you took the Nathan card with the first pack, make sure to grab Rookie Turner with the second one.

Also, if you don’t complete this program during the month of August, keep on the lookout for Rewind Evolution packs in the future. These packs will allow you to unlock Rookie cards from past Evolution programs, and complete them.

Once you pick up the Turner card, you can then begin the player program. To unlock the 96 OVR card, you will need to obtain 50 points toward the program. To get there, you should do the following:

  • Complete both Stage 1 Moments (10 Points)
  • Complete all Stage 2 Moments (20 Points)
  • Complete two of four (five hits with Rookie Turner in online play, three home runs with Dodgers players in online, 10 total bases with rookie Turner, or five extra base hits with third basemen) Missions (20 points)

Alternatively, you could skip one of the four missions by completing a collection of third basemen. However, it might be best to skip that unless you have a slew of Free Agent third basemen that you can dump. Otherwise, you might be throwing away useful cards, and in turn, Stubs.
