Royal's Minor League Talent Distribution - Warning: Obvious Information

I was trying to figure out the Royal's talent distribution in the minors this year, so I decided to do the following quick study. I took John Sickel's top Royal's prospects and grouped them by their current affiliate. If the player is hurt or suspended, I put them at the highest level they achieved the previous year. Then I gave each player points based on John's ratings of (A,B,C): A Prospect = 5 points, B Prospect = 3 points and C Prospect = 1 point. I know, that is some real science going on there.

I added it all up and got the following:

Team Level Number of Prospects Value of Prospects
Kansas City MLB 2 2
Omaha AAA 4 8
Northwest Arkansas AA 9 11
Wilmington A+ 9 17
Burlington A 10 20
Arizona Instructional League Rookie 2 2

 

I know there is nothing to compare it to (maybe more to come), but it looks like Burlington and Wilmington have about the same level of talent with some peculating to Northwest Arkansas. Carry on.
