Los Angeles Angels farm system preliminary grade breakdown

Matt Shoemaker - Jeff Gross

Everyone knows the Los Angeles Angels farm system is thin. How thin? Very thin.

That said, it isn't completely empty and some of the Grade C guys are actually pretty interesting as role players go, or have some upside but are just too far away to get complete reads on yet. There is a distinct lack of impact talent, but the Angels have some plausible bullpen arms, a few potential regulars, and several potential role players. More details later Saturday when I have the final list done. Here is the early breakdown:

One Grade B
One Grade B-
Ten Grade C+
23 Grade C

There are a few grade Cs who may wind up with a C+ but the final list should be close to this.

I have to say that ranking a Top 20 with this organization is very difficult. There is not much to distinguish the various C guys from each other. There is also the problem of California League distortion with the Inland Empire players. But I'm working on it.
