I am working on the Chicago Cubs Top 20 Prospects for 2015 list. Here is the current grade break down of the 45 players under study:

Grade A:   Two
Grade A-:   Two
Grade B+:   Two
Grade B:    Two
Grade B-:   Five
Grade C+:   13
Grade C:    19

There is considerable play there with some of the half-grades, particularly at the B-/C+ boundary.

Feel free to speculate!

Here are the 45 guys under study in case you missed the latest update:
