Rule 5 Picks with a HR in the postseason
There are a several Rule 5 picks that have hit HRs in the postseason.
What I don't know is if any of them hit a HR in the year in which they were selected in the Rule 5 draft.
How would I even go about researching that?
EDIT: I started this in response to Ryan Flaherty hitting a HR tonight.

Roch asked a similar question in one of his game updates. He asked "So, who's the last Rule 5 pick to homer in the playoffs in his rookie season?"
I commented with "Who's the last Rule 5 pick to homer in the playoffs in the year of his selection?"

I still haven't been able to find any players who hit a postseason HR in the year they were selected in the Rule 5 draft. I'm not really finding an easy way to connect the two searches. Sounds like a job for Elias.

Flahertys defense at second still worries me, but I love his bat against righties. Great rule 5 draft pick.
