Boston Red Sox preliminary prospect grade breakdown

First look at BoSox prospect grades. . .

MLB: Spring Training-Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox

I am working on the Boston Red Sox Top 20 prospects for 2019 report. My first run through the grades gives the following results:

Grade A: Zero
Grade A-: Zero
Grade B+: Zero
Grade B: Six
Grade B-: Five
Grade C+: 22
Grade C: Everyone else

There’s some play around the margins and it is possible, though far from certain, that one of the Bs might end up at B+. The names are below; can you match them with the grades?
