Franchise Mode Scouting: "Scouted" vs. "All"

When scouting in Franchise Mode, what is the difference between the list of Scouted Prospects and the list of All Prospects? Is the Scouted List the list of players that your scouts discovered? Is there an advantage to using one over the other?

I think it is the list your scouts spend time observing. So the more time on a player the more accurate your report will be. The 'all' I think are all the players available at that position and region for that class.

All prospects = everyone DISCOVERED. Scouted = prospects that you or the cpu had time to scout (bar is some shade of yellow/green)

So players might get scouted for me, even if I donít assign a scout to him?

Blue chippers, a random, low number of prospects, will be fully scouted at the beginning of the season. Unless you set scouting to auto, which I recommend, those will be the only players scouted. I find manual scouting too tedious. You'll scout less prospects in the same time, than if you set scouting to auto.

Franchise Mode Scouting: "Scouted" vs. "All"

You wonít scout less prospects if you pay attention to when a scout has finished his scouting Trip. You get messages when that happens.

Then you send him on another scouting trip.

Tedious for some, joy of being a GM for others.

I do all my own discovery and scouting. For me it is a big part of my team building experience and now 4 years into my main Yankees franchise I have three of my 2017 June draft kids up in the Show.

Highly rewarding.

Yup, it's one of the only real day to day operations to be done in franchise and I miss it once the draft has gone. Not entirely sure why all our scouts go on holiday after the draft until the new season starts, apparently it's only a 2 month of the year job?

Yep

My carrover from 2016....Catcher Devon Snow was my first pick in the 2019 draft. Now in 2025 he is our starting catcher (first full year) and is second in the NL All Star voting for catchers.

Nothing more rewarding than seeing guys you draft make it to the big leagues and have success at that level.
