Here’s a summary of the first run prospect grades in the Rangers system.

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers

I am working on the Texas Rangers Top 20 prospects list for 2018. My first run through the system gave the following results:

Grade A: Zero
Grade A-: Zero
Grade B+: Two
Grade B: Three
Grade B-: 10
Grade C+: 24
Grade C: Everybody else

As usual the initial grades are generally conservative and there could be some movement (especially in the B-/C+ area) as I work through the data and consult the Delphic oracle. The names:
