Rule Five Round-Up

Tomorrow is the Rule Five draft. By all accounts, Bowden’s going to take a flyer on a player--they have two open slots on their 40-man roster. Just as a refresher, anyone selected in the draft, has to stay on the team’s major league roster for the year. If the player doesn’t, he goes back to the original team, unless a trade can be worked out.

I’m not an expert on the minor leagues, by any means, but I found this list pretty useful. It gives a pretty excellent description of the top players available. One of those lefties would look really useful for some bullpen depth. Remember, Johan Santana was picked in the Rule Five Draft, so you never know what you’ll dig up.
