** PRE-SALE — WILL BE RELEASED IN JANUARY **
The 2017 Prospect Guide features profiles on every player in the system, including the exclusive 2017 top 50 prospects list. Each profile includes advanced stats, such as FIP for pitchers, and wOBA and RC for hitters.
This year’s book will feature player profiles and future potential rankings for every player in the minor league system. Each player profile will include a scouting report, compiled from information we’ve gathered while seeing each player in action, along with talking to their coaches, members of the Pirates’ organization, scouts outside of the organization, and the players themselves.
The 2017 Prospect Guide will feature resources such as the top draft and international bonuses in team history, Rule 5 dates, the best tools throughout the system, and will be the only place you can find the 2017 top 50 prospects.
The top 50 prospects will be featured with full-page profiles, including expanded scouting reports, and photos of each player in the profile. The profiles for the remaining players will feature all of the information we can find on each player, and that includes all of the international prospects who have yet to make the jump to the United States.
