Here’s the current breakdown of Atlanta Braves prospect grades for 2017. As many people have pointed out, there is a large amount of depth in this system, particularly on the pitching side, but hitting is a lot less impressive to my mind (once you get past Swanson and Albies) and relies a lot on toolsy players at the lower levels who haven't done much yet.

There are 51 players I am looking at, listed below. There were about 20 other guys considered. The grade breakdown so far:

Grade A:   One
Grade A-:  One
Grade B+: Three
Grade B:   Four
Grade B-:   11
Grade C+ : 14
Grade C:  20 or more
