I am working on the Arizona Diamondbacks Top 20 prospects list for 2018. Most of Thursday will be devoted to the Rule 5 draft, so the report may not be finished until Friday. Here is a quick look at how the first run through the grades came out.

Grade A: Zero
Grade A-: Zero
Grade B+: One
Grade B: Three
Grade B-: Nine
Grade C+: 17 Lots of flexibility there, will probably be fewer than 17
Grade C: Everyone else
