Chris Lee was released the other day, so I don't think we have to worry about him.

Dietz can't find the strike zone to save his life in Frederick.

Yeah, I only added Dietz because he has been on the OH top 30 the last couple years. He is clearly not a candidate to be added or selected.

I missed Lee being released, I really only added him because he was actually on the 40-man roster a while back and he at last managed to strike people out this year, if nothing else.

Depends on how much room we have but Kremer, Akin, Wells, Mountcastle, and Diaz are the only no brainers for me.   Not too afraid of losing any of the others but I think the odds of getting picked and lasting a whole year in the majors are not real good.

I think McKenna would get picked and could last a whole year in the Majors. It is harder for an outfielder to last, but Carlos Tocci and Victor Reyes both lasted full seasons in 2018 as Rule 5 players. They were similar level prospects, but McKenna has more power than both Tocci and Reyes and both Tocci and Reyes lasted all season despite recording sub 50 OPS+ in the Majors. As long as he is a legitimate centerfielder defensively, I think he could stick as a fourth outfielder.

I think it may come down how he looks the last 6+ weeks of the season and I imagine he will get another season in the AFL

Yeah, let's see what McKenna does the last 6 weeks.  As of now, I believe Luke thinks 4th of is his most likely outcome.  If someone wants to pick him and stash him for a year, more power to them.  What kind of numbers did those other guys put up the year they were selected?

We currently have Broxton, Smith Jr and Wilkerson on the 40 man right now. Of course you protect McKenna (and Diaz) over any of them.

Is Broxton on contract beyond this season?

Chances of losing McKenna are slim and none.  Broxton isn't here next year.  50/50 that Smith and Wilkerson are. Difference is that they are already on the 40 man.  Every year I go through this.  Everyone wants to protect too many guys.  Everyone is afraid of losing someone who is 22 and hitting .235 in AA and striking out 1/4 of the time.  And some team is going to pick him, why?

If Broxton isn't here next year, and Smith and Wilkerson are 50/50, who do you think will fill those spots on the 40 man?

You think they prefer to find another Smith Jr over protecting McKenna?

Too early to tell.  If there's plenty of room then a guy like McKenna probably gets protected.  Guys like him, Peralta, and Sedlock are fringy.  I could see a team selecting Peralta but he'd still be a lonshot to stick

Nobody is taking Peralta. Right now, it looks like Alvarado would be much more likely to be picked than Peralta.

Peralta is starting verses Alvarado relieving.  Alvarado is 93-96 as a reliever.  Peralta is pretty much that as a starter and probably a tick better.  A team thinking slightly outside the box could take a look at Peralta as a one inning reliever.  Good chance he sits 96-98 as a reliever.  Doesn't mean he'll be good but teams take fliers on that.

Peralta’s secondary stuff is better too. Alvarado has the profile of a guy who’d have to be left handed or dominating AAA to get selected and it still wouldn’t be likely. If the ceiling is 35/40, they better be MLB ready to warrant Rule 5 consideration.
