How many do we need to add to it to protect them from Rule 5?
That's one of the tricky things about stocking up the farm in a rebuild, sooner or later there are so many prospects that need to be protected that you have to cut so many fringe type of players. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing.

Yeah and they also start to run out of options. Sierra for instance is out of options so he needs to make the team or be placed on waivers.

Yea Frisaro called Sierra a trade candidate because of that and it's like wait a minute didn't we just acquire him why is he already a question of needs to make the team or be gone? Seems like that came way too soon but I get it. This forces the team to only keep the best of the bunch.

What'd you read right?
Sorry that wasn't clear but I just came across this on some unofficial Instagram posts and have yet to see it said by any actual reporters so I'm not 100% sure this is even true... but it seemed way too specific to be totally made up either so I thought it was worth a post.

Wouldn't some team need to have some legit interest in Sierra though to acquire him? Maybe with a real good spring....

In year's past he'd have definitely be a good trade candidate at the deadline to a contending team looking to get a couple extra steals in the playoffs.
'tis no longer the way, though.
