Rule 5 Eligibles (2018)
« Topic Start: November 17, 2017, 12:59:59 PM »
Here's a nice writeup on where the Nats stand heading into the Rule 5 deadline on Monday at 8 AM.  The Nats have 5 open 40-man slots.

There are about 20 or so guys who would be Rule-5 eligible.

Who would I consider: Kieboom, Bacus.  Maybe.

I can't see Joan Baez making the 40 man.  Baez peaked back when Dylan was young.

You're clearly not looking at both sides now...

Whoops...that was Judy Collins...  :hysterical:

after adding Kelvin Gutierrez and Jefry Rodriguez, the Nats are leavin Taylor Gushue and Spencer Kieboom exposed.  I guess if one gets taken, they pull the other back and have a primary catcher for AA behind Read or Severino in Syracuse.

Nats didn't lose anyone in the Rule 5 draft, but did lose one (R.C. Orlan) and take two in the AAA portion of the draft.

Astros select 22 year old Catcher Alejandro Flores from the Nats in the AAA round.  .216 / .309 / .390 at Hagerstown last year.
