Here’s the first-run grade distribution for 61 Oakland Athletics prospects.

Minor League Baseball: Arizona Fall League-All Star Game

I am working on the Oakland Athletics Top 20 prospects for 2018 list. The first run through the grades gives the following results:

Grade A: Zero
Grade A-: Two
Grade B+: One
Grade B: Three
Grade B-: Seven
Grade C+: 21
Grade C: 27

There are a lot of borderline grades to resolve, several B-/C+ boundary calls to make and a few more along the B/B+ axis, so the final results may differ from the current breakdown.
