How the early Angels prospect grades distribute. . .

2017 Major League Baseball Draft
Jo Adell

I’ve finished my first run through the Los Angeles Angels farm system and here are the early grade results:

Grade A: One
Grade A-: Zero
Grade B+: One
Grade B: Two
Grade B-: Five
Grade C+: 17
Grade C: 30+

This system has improved a great deal over the last two years. Things are looking up. There is some play around the margins but the final grades will be close to this.
