Teams are going to view Rule V guys as the 25th guy on the roster, someone who is only going to get a few at-bats a week and be a defensive replacement. I get what you are saying but I'm pretty sure any team carrying a Rule V player on the major league roster would admit they have a better short term option in AAA but the only way to keep their rights is to have them on the 25 man roster all season, so they often try to hide them as the 25th guy as they generally aren't ready or their original team would put them on the 40 man roster. Guys like this don't get protected because the Nats gambled that nobody would add him as Komatsu is clearly not ready to be a major league contributor right now. Certainly a team such as the Astros with nothing to lose could claim him much like they did with Justin Maxwell as a long term investment, not a short term one. Just my 2 cents

Komatsu can play all three positions in the outfield, has good speed, and will be cheaper than veteran options. I'm not saying he is definitely going to be claimed, just that there are a handful of teams that would most definitely be willing to carry him as a short term option. With that said, my hope is he ends up back with this organization.
It was a good claim by the Cards. They knew Allen Craig was going to miss the beginning of the season before the Rule V draft so why A) pay a Vet a full season for a month's work or B) needlessly call up a prospect that would be better served playing in the minors.
