ALL TEAMS TOP 30 PLAYERS NOT PROTECTED FOR THE RULE 5

Recommended Posts

This guys has a perfect fielding percentage at SS...Plus .265/.336/.405 at AA in 2019

Quote

Kyle Holder – SS – Former first rounder is a plus defender but lacks offensive punch

37 XBH out of 109 .... A little light but he may develop. Hi OPS was 742 in AA

So we have 38 spots filled? Or 39? I would expect we can take two guys in the rule five, but not if there’s not space for them.

With weams just posting Wynns off, that makes it likely 37 now.

edit:Orioles claim RHP Ashton Goudeau

 

So maybe they are just trying to keep it at 38 and have the option to choose 2.

My vote is SS/2B Omar Estevez #21 prospect from the LAD. The Dodgers paid $6 million for him, plus a $6 million penalty as a Cuban defector a few years ago. Similar to how they spent for Yusniel Diaz. In a way we can double down on their spent money.

I. Wonder if they regret not keeping Bailey over LeBlanc or one of the other guys. Pitched limited innings but had a 2.25 era this season.

I don’t remember his first name or his team so I can’t look him up, but did he make the big leagues?

I mentioned him somewhere...Was solid at AA at age 21. He’s a better gamble than keeping a guy like Sanchez IMO

If you want infielders, I do think it’s a pretty good Rule 5 class for infielders,” Cooper said during a Zoom interview yesterday. “And a lot of different types of infielders. To me, Kyle Holder is a guy - first-round pick of the Yankees four years ago out of college - he’s a really good glove. There are questions about the bat. If you say could he do a passable job of playing major league defense? Absolutely. Can he hit enough to where he is not just a complete zero at the plate? I think that’s possible, too. So he is one that stands out to me.”

 

Quote

n Double-A Trenton in 2019 over 112 games, he batted .265/.336/.405 with 25 doubles, three triples, nine homers and 40 RBIs. He made one Baseball America top 30 prospects list and was New York’s No. 27 prospect in 2016.

Estevez or Ibanez

Quote

Ibanez, 27, has 231 career starts at second base and 156 at third. In Triple-A in 2019, he hit .300/.375/.497 in 121 games. Texas signed him out of Cuba for $1.6 million and he was the youngest Cuban player on the 2013 World Baseball Classic team. Baseball America rated him as high as the Rangers’ No. 5 prospect in 2017.

Estevez is also from Cuba and was signed for $6 million by the Dodgers in 2015. He is currently rated as the Dodgers’ No. 18 prospect by Baseball America and No. 21 by MLBPipeline.com. In 2019 at Double-A, he batted .291/.352/.431in 83 games. He’s made 240 career starts at short with 183 at second base.

How many will be selected

Quote

Cooper believes there is a decent chance there are fewer Rule 5 players taken in the major league phase this year than in 2019, when 11 were selected. Of course, there were no minor league games to watch this season.

If so ... My guess is a guy like Pop is pretty safe this year.

 

Quote

“Zach Pop is a guy, the injuries sometimes are a selling point for guys to get drafted. Anthony Santander had a shoulder injury and he was picked as an example of this. If you have a legitimate injury - not a made-up injury and teams have been punished for that - you can spend time on the IL recovering from that. You can even be sent to the minors to have a rehab assignment. You have to stay on the active MLB roster for 90 days. So if you spend half the season on the IL and the other half on the active roster, you’ve fulfilled that. A guy like Pop who has had an injury, maybe that makes him even more appealing to pick.”

Weird Year!

Quote

“This year, we have guys that were supposed to go to high-A or Double-A in 2020 and they spent the year at home instead. Are there teams out there that are willing to take them and stash them on the their roster all year? Maybe. Do we even know what the makeup of the MLB active roster will be? No, we don’t. So there are a lot of unknowns there. It does make for a crazy, unpredictable Rule 5 draft.”

 

Quote

Cooper has also been providing outstanding coverage of the minor league situation and which teams will make the final list of 120 full-season teams. He believes there could be resolution on that this week.

Jose Alberto Rivera, RHP, Astros

Another pitcher who has never played above High-A in the minor leagues, Rivera has a huge arm with a potential plus changeup down the line. And players with big velocity and at least one strong secondary pitch can find a lot of success in the back of a MLB bullpen.

Rivera has actually been connected to the Orioles, specifically, according to CBS Sports. For a team still looking for talent wherever they can find it, they could do a whole lot worse than a player from Elias' former organization, one that is known for their ability to develop talented but flawed pitching prospects.

I personally think we should draft Estevez first if he’s still on the board

 

Quote

Omar Estevez, INF Dodgers

Estevez is the Dodgers' 21st-ranked prospect according to MLB Pipeline, which is more impressive than it sounds once you consider Los Angeles regularly has the deepest farm system in baseball. He's still just 22, which is younger than most prospects here, and looks like a future Major League hitter.

Infielders aren't typically available in abundance in the Rule 5 Draft, so despite the question marks surrounding his defensive home, Estevez is an appealing bat for teams this year.

Worried about Pop being selected ?

 

Quote

Marshall Kasowski, RHP Dodgers

Kasowski has terrific swing-and-miss stuff (177 strikeouts in 107.2 minor league innings) but also lacks command (5.5 BB/9). Whether or not he fulfills his promise as a potential bullpen ace will largely depend on his ability to harness better control of his pitches, in addition to recovering from offseason elbow surgery. 

He's proven an ability to make comebacks before, though. His story is an inspirational one, overcoming a life-threatening accident in collegein which he was hit by a car going over 100 mph.

2020 Rule 5 Draft targets

The Rule 5 Draft often comes down to a particular club's evaluation of a player being higher than everyone else's, along with some elements of a heavy MLB need contributing. In an unprecedented offseason, it's impossible to predict who may be taken in the Rule 5 Draft. Four unprotected players who stand out include Kevin Maitan (infield | Angels) and Lazaro Armenteros (outfield | Athletics), who were two of the most-hyped international prospects of the last decade, former fourth-overall pick Riley Pint (right-handed pitcher | Rockies) and former 22nd-overall pick Will Craig (first base | Pirates).

Here's a list of players ranked in MLB Pipeline's Top 30 for each club that are unprotected heading into the 2020 Rule 5 Draft:

Sporting News prospective on the rule 5.....Good Read!

    • Well, the Orioles got off to a terrible start in what is hopefully Elias' final tankathon season. They owned the 28th pick in the 2022 MLB draft upon leaving Boston. However, they've now rallied up to the number four pick, just two games behind Colorado. The Elijah Green sweepstakes are under way!
    • Of course I knew him but I never watched him. I thought those cartoons were stupid, even as an 8-year old. Tom and Jerry too. But the Warner bros gang were brilliant.  i was very fond of Mighty Mouse, too. The artwork was stunning.
    • Dont hold you're breath. 
    • o   Young man, you're no Walter Johnson.   o
    • I think a fan with a certain bit of refinement should understand that prospect rankings are not definitive statements on the health of a player development system.  What the O's need to be able to do to win consistently at the ML level is find and develop players better than their peers.  Taking Rutchsman doesn't actually resolve that issue.  Whiffing on 1-2 doesn't resolve that issue.  Neither does losing 100 games a year.  That issue is resolved in improving the O's processes in finding and developing amateur talent.  So if you want to criticize Elias or the rebuild, criticize that.  The fact that the O's stink in 2021, or 2020, or 2023, was predestined several years before it happened. You hit the O's biggest organizational failure on the head: The failure to develop quality pitching.  I've said this before and I'll say it again: The reason so many highly ranked minor league arms fail here and go on to do better elsewhere in some cases is because pitching for the O's is the most difficult pitching environment in the big leagues, and I don't think it is close.  Based on who and where you pitch, this is easily the worst place to pitch in the major leagues, other than maybe Colorado. So if Elias doesn't solve that particular riddle, he is mostly likely to fail.  I don't think he's infallible.  It's very possible he does fail.  But I'm not going to get up in arms about the O's being shit 2 and a half years into what I takes twice that time to favorably construct.
    • Those high rankings were almost solely the result of picking in the top 5 AND some good trading by MacPhail- who actually had a ML asset or two when he arrived unlike Elias. It was not a testament to the Orioles ability to find and develop players though. Before we go down this road, I think I should clearly state we don't seem to disagree.  I said 3-5 years.  You presented the Mariners as an example of doing it in 3 years.  Even if I accept the premise that they did what you say, that fits into the window I provided.
