I've compiled my own list of top prospects within the organization. Keep in mind that this list is purely from my own spare time, and isn't a "final say", by any means. Because of my lack of Minor League games visited and lack of extreme in-depth knowledge of the players' on-field tendencies, this list by any means shouldn't be interpreted as 'official'. My grading system is similar to that of John Sickels, writer for the website Minor League Ball. However, my grades are slightly friendlier.
However, I'd like to read your thoughts!
A = Absolute can't miss. Will be a big-league superstar.
A- = Can't miss prospect who should contribute at big-league level and will likely become a star.
B+ = Can't miss prospect who should contribute at big-league level and might become a star.
B = Prospect who should contribute at big-league level.
B- = Prospect who might contribute at big-league level.
C+ = Intriguing prospect who might contribute at big-league level.
C = Borderline prospect who might contribute at big-league level.
C- = Borderline prospect who will probably not contribute at big-league level.
*NOTE:* I was somewhat lenient in my definition of a 'prospect'. I included all Minor Leagues 27 and younger.
