DURHAM, N.C., January 2, 2013 – Baseball America is pleased to announce the release of a new annual publication, the Baseball America Fantasy Guide. The Fantasy Guide will be available on print and digital newsstands in early January 2013.

Baseball America “First and foremost, this is a magazine that can get you ready for your fantasy season, with everything you expect to find in a preview publication,” said Baseball America editor Will Lingo. “But it also features a uniquely Baseball America perspective, with scouting information and plenty of prospects. We know the best fantasy baseball competitors read Baseball America, so we’re excited to bring our point of view to the fantasy game.”

The Baseball America Fantasy Guide features player rankings and in-depth scouting reports of the key players at every position, as well as statistical projections for 2013.
