Progress continues on the 2018 San Francisco Giants Top 20 prospects list. My first draft of the grades breaks down like this:

Grade A: Zero
Grade A-: Zero
Grade B+: Zero
Grade B: Two (one of them may end up at B+)
Grade B-: Seven (one of them may end up as a B)
Grade C+: 25
Grade C: Everyone else

The Giants always seem to have a lot of C+ guys and they get more out of them than many organizations. The same looks true this year. On the other hand there is a lack of high-ceiling talent compared to the strongest farm systems, even if the borderline B ends up at B+ and the borderline B- ends up at B.
