Baltimore Orioles preliminary grade breakdown

New, 55 comments

Here is the current grade breakdown/distribution for the Baltimore Orioles prospect list.

38 players graded
Grade A   Zero
Grade A-  One
Grade B+   Zero
Grade B    Two
Grade B-   Four
Grade C+   14
Grade C     17

This strikes me as somewhat similar to the Giants system in that there is a lot of C+ here, potentially solid contributors, but not a lot of star-types aside from Dylan Bundy (which involves the assumption that the Tommy John recovery is full and complete), Hunter Harvey (who has to prove he can stay healthy), and perhaps Chance Sisco (if his power comes around).

I actually like the system more than the raw grades may imply and there are some good sleepers here. Have fun speculating.
