Rule 5 Draft


Recommended Posts

who qualify for a rule 5? the non tendos?


 Players who are not currently on their team's 40-man roster are eligible to be selected in the Rule 5 draft, but only after a standard exemption period has elapsed. See Selection eligibility below.


Selection eligibility


Players are eligible for selection in the Rule 5 draft who are not on their major league organization's 40-man roster and:


– were 18 or younger on the June 5 preceding their signing and this is the fifth Rule 5 draft upcoming; or


– were 19 or older on the June 5 preceding their signing and this is fourth Rule 5 draft upcoming.


These exemption periods (one year longer than those in effect previously) went into effect as part of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement in October 2006. The change took effect immediately, exempting many players from the 2006 Rule 5 draft even though they had been signed in some cases more than four years before the new agreement came into effect. Prior to the rule change, players were exempt from the first two or three Rule 5 drafts held after their signing (regardless of the year they were drafted), rather than from the first three or four Rule 5 drafts after their signing.

Yimmi Brasoban, rhp, Padres: Brasoban ranked 19th in the Padres system a year ago. The Padres’ system is significantly deeper this year, but it is still a surprise that San Diego left the hard-throwing righthander unprotected as he has two major league pitches (a 95-98 mph fastball and an excellent slider) and he has Double-A experience. Brasoban’s control wavers at times, but with an ability to eat up righthanded hitters (who hit .190/.292/.238 against him in Double-A), he is a very intriguing potential pick.


Yonny Chirinos, rhp, Rays: While some of the players on this list have significant control issues, Chrinos will go weeks without walks at times. As a starter, he had a 43-5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in May and June and for his career, Chirinos has walked 1.4 batters per nine innings. While Chirinos hits his spots, he’s not a soft-tosser. He sits in the low 90s as a starter and has touched 95 as a reliever. He’s always had a decent changeup and his slider has improved in 2016. Chirinos’ upside is more limited than some of the other Rule 5 candidates, but his combination of solid stuff and big-league ready control makes him more able to contribute immediately than the majority of candidates on Rule 5 unprotected lists.


Here are two potential picks!
