Here’s the first run grade distribution for 65 Kansas City Royals prospects, listed below.

The vast majority of these guys are Grade Cs; this is a thin system and there are some stretches here. There are a few others you could slot in, none of them more than Grade Cs. The organization discussion thread is here.

The breakdown:

Grade A: Zero
Grade A-: Zero
Grade B+: Zero
Grade B: One, maybe two
Grade B-: Seven, maybe six
Grade C+: 24
Grade C: A bunch

Some of the C+s are borderline with C and generous. The final breakdown may differ slightly but not by much. There is a notable lack of impact talent. Basically there are quite a few future utility infielders and middle relievers.
