Hood is not on the 40 man roster.  Does he need to be added this offseason to be protected from Rule 5?  If no, then I don't think he gets a sniff of the majors this year.

This is his fifth season in the Nats' minor league system and was signed at age 18 (if my math is correct - born 4/3/1990 and was drafted in June 2008) and the rule is:

Players are eligible for selection in the Rule 5 draft who are not on their major league organization's 40-man roster and:
– were signed at age 19 or older and have been in the organization for four years; or
– were signed at age 18 or younger and have been in the organization for five years.
