Here's my current list of 43 prospects under study in the Kansas City Royals farm system. This is a thin organization at this point. The current grade breakdown goes like this:

Grade A:  Zero
Grade A-: Zero
Grade B+: One
Grade B: Three
Grade B-: Three
Grade C+: 11
Grade C: 25

Many of the Grade Cs are quite marginal. There is a bit of play at the top, with at least one of the Grade Bs being a plausible B+. I'm still studying it.
