Another Rule 5 preview

New, 6 comments

Bryan Smith at Baseball Analysts with a Rule 5 preview, which I think is worth noting because he does a great job of breaking down Rule 5 selections into the 7 different categories of players who are selected -- i.e., the Johan Santana category (high-risk, high-reward pitchers who throw hard but are young and haven't pitched above A-ball), the Jay Gibbons category (guys who can't hit, but nothing else), etc.

Three Rangers are pegged as possible selections -- Drew Meyer, Vince Sinisi, and Anthony Webster -- with Smith identifying Sinisi as someone whose bat "pretty much necessitates a pick."
