Here are the preliminary grade breakdown results for the upcoming Minnesota Twins Top 20 prospects list for 2018.

Grade A: Zero
Grade A-: Zero (caveat, see below)
Grade B+: Four
Grade B: Four
Grade B-: Six
Grade C+: 15
Grade C: A whole bunch

Right now I have Royce Lewis right on the border between an A- and a B+, though counted as a B+ above. He’ll probably wind up at A- but I’m not 100% sure yet and have some things to review first.

There is a lot of play here particularly in the Bs and the final tally may look considerably different than this.

Here’s the list of everyone I’m looking at:
