Prospects and LS collections

How do you guys think they will handle the prospects in DD? Do we get a normal 40 man roster for the team collections and all the prospects are thrown into the Free agents section? Or will the prospects just not have common/bronze live series cards until they are actually called up? I’m hoping the live collections are still the normal 40 man rosters because it will be a pain to collect 100 common cards of said players

LS have always been and will continue to be the current 40-man roster. The only question is if those on the 40 that haven't made their MLB premiere will be included. I'm guessing not, b/c it will continue to allow a couple of free spaces that will allow players on the DL to continue to be part of their team's roster.

Prospect cards will be treated just like other flashbacks (All-Star, Finest, POTM, etc).

I get that, but take Adley Rutchman as an example. He has the prospect WS reward card thats treated like a normal flashback card, but would he have a bronze or silver LS card in the free agent collection? I assumed LS collections would be just the 40 man rosters but I’m not sure how they will treat the guys that have prospect cards and if they would have LS cards or not

Not until he gets called up.

From what I understand, prospect cards are basically replacing future star cards. I don't think there are going to be common or bronze prospect cards that we are going to need to collect.

Once someone gets called up; they'll eventually get added to that team's collection.

Usually added as a Common or Bronze, that go for a CRAPLOAD of stubs.

I know how that works. I’ve been playing DD for years. This is just the first time these players are in the game at launch. Previous years these players wouldn’t even be in Franchise or RTTS until they were called up. I just didn’t know how it would work in DD this year with them being in Franchise and RTTS from the get go

If I had to guess prospects will be in the flashbacks/legends section in collections for the team iirc thats how the future stars were always handled

the prospect series will be in the flashback/legend portion, and the player won't have a LS card until they are on the 40 man and have played at least 1 game in the majors.

... unless your dad is capable of hitting bouncing balls in the dirt. Then, you can have an LS card before your 1st game.
