Note that I will not be able to mail out any orders until March 28th since I am in Arizona for spring training.
The book is 252 pages in length with full detailed and updated scouting reports for the Indians’ top 100 prospects. In addition to that, the book has scouting reports for every single player that played stateside with the Indians last season and was taken in the 2012 Draft, as well as a handful of players from the Dominican Summer League. In total, 204 players are featured, with 32 new entrants into the Top 100 and over 80 completely new reports for players not in last year’s book. If the player was in the organization at any time last season and still with the organization, a report is written on him!
As always, in addition to the scouting reports the book serves as a handy reference guide throughout the season not only for the minor leagues but for the big league team as well. The book includes a listing of the top prospects at each position, a complete 5-year ranking history, affiliate information, 2012 Draft results, projected opening day rosters from Cleveland to Lake County, Rule 5 Draft eligibles from 2013-2017, 2012 released players recap, 2012transactions, 2013 minor league spring training schedule, a complete 2013 Indians’ affiliate minor league schedule, and more! It is basically the IBI website in book format and a great reference tool all season.
Also only in the book and not on the website:
- Tool grades: The tool grades are back this year as for each of the Top 100 prospects they are graded on several of their abilities (power, hitting, speed, fastball, command, etc).
- Individual player transactions: This is a listing under each scouting report so you can see when each player in the Top 100 was moved to a new team or went on the disabled list last season.
- "Best Tools": This listing ranks the best in the system in several tools categories.
- Previous ranking: This is included with the tool grades so people can see where prospects were ranked in 2012.
- Upside and value grades: Grades to show what kind of upside and ML value each player in the Top 100 has.
- International Top 20 prospects: This listing profiles all the top talent coming stateside this year from last year's Dominican Summer League team or who were recently signed on the international front in the past year.
- College stats: Stats for all college players from the 2012 Draft.
This book will serve as all the reference you need this season to follow the 2013 Cleveland Indians and their future big league players of tomorrow. Order your copy today!
