The rough draft of the 2013 Baseball Prospect Book is finished. Jeri is editing, and right now I am reviewing all the grades and working on the Top 50/50 list. The book is scheduled to go to press on Wednesday night and we are still on schedule for shipping to all pre-orders on February 2nd.

I'm going to use this thread to keep you updated on grade changes for important prospects. Once this is complete, I will go back and re-order the Top 20 Prospects List in each organization as necessary to reflect the final grades. I will also be posting some excerpts from the book, so watch out for those. When all of that is done, I will work on organizational rankings.

Here are the known grade changes.

Javier Baez, SS, Chicago Cubs: Change from Grade A to Grade A-
Francisco Lindor, SS, Cleveland Indians: Change from Grade A- to Grade B+
Bubba Starling, OF, Kansas City Royals: Change from Grade B+ to Grade B
Mike Olt, 3B, Texas Rangers Change from a Grade A- to a Grade B+
Garin Cecchini, 3B, Boston Red Sox Change from Grade B+ to Grade B.
