:: 2018 Rule 5 Draft coverage:

For this particular year, that means an high or international school Draft pick signed in 2014 — assuming he had been 18 or younger at June 5 of the year — has to be protected. A college player is in exactly the exact same position.

Here is a listing of titles to observe, which can get upgraded through the Winter Meetings:

Wednesday

Drew Jackson, 2B/SS, Dodgers: The Stanford product was obtained by the Mariners from the fifth round of the 2015 Draft, subsequently dealt to the Dodgers in March 20 17. They could conduct (2-2 steals in 2018) and really throw, and has now seen time at two middle-infield rankings together side a handful of matches at dawn and in the outfield.

Erick Leal, RHP, Cubs: Leal has never pitched above Class A, but he also put his name on the map in the Arizona Fall League this season by setting 17 1/3 scoreless innings to start his stint there. He’s pitched both as a starter and a reliever, that does increase his potential price.

Tuesday

Tyler Jay, LHP, Twins: Once shutting Illinois and moving No. 6 overall in the 2015 Draft,” Jay gave starting a try, but went back into the bullpen in 20 17 as injuries kept him from the mound. He had been up and down last season, after healthy but a few may possibly check out add a reliever.

Richie Martin, SS, A’s: Taken No. 20 overall out of this University of Florida in 2015, Martin is coming out of his best season as a pro, hitting .300 and stealing 25 bases in double a. He been a shortstop, but saw time and that flexibility adds to his value.

Monday

He spent the year in 2018 in double a and pitched , though he also missed a month and a half on the list.

But he awakened by pitching his way into double a in 2018, completing with a 0.95 ERA, .200 batting average against and an 11.8 K/9 rate.

Junior Fernandez, RHP, Cardinals: Fernandez moved full-time to a bullpen character in 2018, a season that didn’t start for him until June as a result of arm tenderness. He still has a superior fastball that gets into the upper-90s, but he does not miss as many bats as you’d think (7.0 K/9 in 2018).

Riley Ferrell, RHP, Astros: The other strong-armed righthander with the sort of velocity teams such as from the Rule 5 Draft as potential bullpen bits, Ferrell was tough going to Double-A in 2018 (.171 BAA, 12.5 K/9). But he fought with a promotion to triplea and has had difficulty throwing strikes (4.3 BB/9) in his career.

Jake Gatewood, 1B, Brewers: coping with the torn ACL, Gatewood can easily get selected and place on the 60-day DL and given time to rehab the accident before needing to be on a major league roster. His power, and swing and miss, are valid, but he might DH, play first and perhaps once he’s healthy, an outfield corner.

Foster Griffin, LHP, Royals: Griffin had been the Royals’ Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2017, then regressed last year (5.13 ERA, .315 BAA), though he threw better down the stretch (3.51 ERA on his final 12 outings). He’s been lasting and may be a No. 5 starter alternative.

Of attention to teams might be his .184 BAA against left handed hitters during the entire year and he impressed many against a greater degree of competition.

A Southern League allstar because a result, that the righthander finished with a 1.39 ERA, 1.86 BAA and a 9.7 K/9 rate through the entire year, then finished things off with a solid showing from the AFL.

Zach Thompson, RHP, White Sox: A starter to start his pro career, Thompson moved into the bullpen in 20 17 and it stuck. The righthander submitted a 1.55 ERA and reached double a in 2018 while striking out 9.1/9.

Kean Wong, 2B/OF, Rays: Kolten’s brother has ever struck, including a .282 average in triplea in 2018, though there’s not a whole lot of power there also and he does not draw a lot of walks. He’d play second, third and the outfield.
