I am working on the Houston Astros Top 20 prospects list for 2018. I might be able to finish it this weekend but with Thanksgiving and family distractions Monday is more likely. Here is the current breakdown of 73 grades.

Grade A: Zero
Grade A-: Two (note that these are both currently A-/A and may be straight A)
Grade B+: Two
Grade B: Six
Grade B-: Four
Grade C+: 15 or more
Grade C: A whole bunch

There are a lot of borderline grades and this breakdown is not close to final.
