I know about the AAA phase, it's the protected players I don't know about.

I was surprised by the number of AAA selections. 

Here's the clearest explanation I've found:

Also, anyone who is on the 38-player Triple-A roster is protected from being picked in the minor league draft.

The minor league phase is much simpler--there are no eligibility rules that have to then be maintained. The player is drafted, the player's old organization is paid $24,500 (editor's note: this is updated after originally stating an incorrect figure) and immediately the player becomes a member of his new organization.

McKenna wasn’t in AAA at any point. They had to protect him.

I don't think that matters.  Not all 38 players have to actually be playing in AAA, just like not all 40 players on the 40-man roster have to be actually playing in MLB.

Number5 is right, he could and would’ve definitely been added to the additional 38 man roster. Sedlock and Fenter will be along with Klimek, Muckenhirn, Alvarado,  Cumberland, etc.

The simple way to think of it is that 40 players are protected from the Rule 5 draft, and 78 are protected from the AAA phase. Maybe a guy like Jaylen Ferguson gets left off and selected, maybe Dietz as well.
