RULE 5 DRAFT RESULTS

With the conclusion of the Winter Meetings comes the annual Rule 5 Draft, where teams are able to select unprotected players from other organizations. There areĀ a few famous Rule 5 success stories, like Johan Santana, but for the most part the players chosen don’t rise to superstardom. Here are the results from this year’s major league phase:
