Future Prospects Theory

SDS

This may have been already talked about but it seems like there is a hint to the future prospect cards in DD.

If you look at the generic day 1 roster, there are multiple prospects where you cannot change their likeness even though they have 0 service time in MLB.

All the prospects released so far except for Julio Rodriguez fit this theory.

Those I've found (yeah I'm bored with the game right now) are:

Tyler Freeman (Indians)
Nolan Jones (Indians)
Vidal Brujan (Ray's)
Deivi Garcia (NYY)
Heliot Ramos (SF)
Taylor Trammell (SD)
Luis Patino (SD)
Seth Beer (Zona)
Domingo Leyba (Zona)
Nolan Gorman (STL)
KeBryan Hayes (PIT)
Travis Swaggerty (PIT)
Corey Ray (Brewer's)
Hunter Greene (Reds)
Jonathan India (Reds)
Albert Alzolay (Cubs)
Spencer Howard (Phil's)
Andres Gimenez (Mets)
Luis Garcia (Nats)
Jazz Chisholm (Miami)
Monte Harrison (Miami)
Ian Anderson (Braves)
Josh Jung (Tex)
Evan White (Seattle)
Brandon Marsh (Angels)
Alex Kirilloff (Twins)
Brady Singer (Royals)
Jackson Kowar (Royals)
Alex Faedo (Tigers)
Daz Cameron (Tigers)

Obviously others could come up to that have service time already which makes sense why their likeness is in the game (Kieboom, Lutz, May, Hoerner, etc.)

These could be the Stage 2 Team Affinity in my opinion. It would fit with the Stage 1 affinity reward at 25. Collect all of them or a # of them and get 95 Gavin Lux for example. Just throwing around ideas...

Thoughts?

SDS

Corey Ray and Alex Faedo already have prospect cards.

I do think it’s a solid idea though.

I'd like to see some 'What Could Have Been' prospect cards...Cards of great players who were traded away prior to their MLB call-up.

99 overall Matt LaPorta and Mark Appell. Certainly the biggest 2 busts in recent memory. Although LaPorta isn't that recent at this point

Thank you astros

SDS

Yes, you're right on man. I think these will be a part of Team Affinity for sure. Future Faces of the Franchise.

SDS

Future Faces of the Franchise makes sense.

I think we will at a minimum see 1 more prospect per team.

SDS

Well, the final stage 2 affinity reward says “coming in the future,” whereas all the other ones say coming soon. Maybe it’s pointing to that?

SDS

I think you will see a franchise marquee at the end , like signature Gehrig or Mo for NY . Middle I was thinking a major name from the past. Like judge or mattingly for yanks

I noticed that, but never thought anything of it.

I think you’re on to something!
