Rule 5 pick Julian Fernandez claimed from Giants

Recommended Posts

He's a pitcher who missed all of 2018. He has to remain on 25-man roster for at least 90 days in 2019.

He will start season on DL due to Tommy John.

Why would he need to stay on the Marlins 25 man roster if he was a Rule 5 pick last year?

Because he was on DL for entire year.

He'd have to be offered back to Colorado if he does not remain on active roster once he is back from DL.

Oh.  I didn't know that was the rule.

I assume it is to prevent a team from stashing a guy on the DL for an entire season just to gain control of them. Not sure a team would do that, but it is the reason for the rule I assume.
