In the next few weeks the Pirates Prospects 2012 Annual will be released, covering every player invited to major league Spring Training, along with exclusive features and articles. Some of those features include Pitch F/X reports on Erik Bedard, Charlie Morton, Jeff Karstens, and other pitchers on the staff. Each player will have an exclusive projection for their 2012 stat line, and the book will contain other topics, such as historical views on the Pirates, a glance at the other NL Central teams, and a look at how the production from Jose Tabata and Alex Presley compares to other corner outfields in baseball.

The Annual is currently available for pre-sale on the Products page. Those of you who bought the 2012 Prospect Guide can use the discount code on page 204 to get $5 off the book. If you haven’t bought the Prospect Guide, you can buy both the Prospect Guide and the Annual together for a discounted rate.

The 2012 Prospect Guide was released in mid-December, which was earlier than last year’s mid-January release date. You can still pick up your copy on the Products page. If you’re looking for the eBook version, it can be found here. The eBook version is for sale through the publisher, and from now until January 20th you can use the code “PRICETHAW” at checkout to get 20% off the book. That makes the eBook $16.

The Prospect Guide covers every player in the system, with over 250 scouting reports, a complete international section, a review of the 2011 season, and other references for the Rule 5 draft, minor league free agency, signing bonuses, and more. If you’re not looking for that much information, and just want a look at the top prospects in the system, we now have the Prospect Guide Lite. The Lite version of the Prospect Guide is an eBook which contains the top 50 prospects in the system, a featured article on Gerrit Cole, Jameson Taillon, Luis Heredia, and Stetson Allie, and the depth charts, All-tools teams, and 2015 projected lineups. It doesn’t include the other 200+ scouting reports, the international section, or the previously mentioned references. The Lite version of the Prospect Guide can be purchased here through our publisher. You can also use the code “PRICETHAW” at checkout to get 20% off the book through January 20th, making the book $8. If you’ve already bought the Prospect Guide, there is no need to buy the Lite version, since it only contains information from the full version.
