Friday is deadline day, and for some prospects, it could be a very big day.
Friday marks the day on which Rule 5-eligible players must be added to their organization’s 40-man rosters in order to be protected from this year’s Rule 5 Draft, which will take place on Thursday, Dec. 10, at the Winter Meetings in Nashville.
Players are eligible for the Rule 5 Draft if they have not been added to a 40-man roster within five seasons of signing (if they were 18 or younger at time of signing) or within four seasons (if they were 19 or older at time of signing). If a player is selected in the Rule 5 Draft, he must stay on his new club’s 25-man roster or disabled list for the duration of the 2015 season, lest he be returned to his original organization. Delino DeShields (Rangers), J.R. Graham (Twins) and Sean Gilmartin (Mets) are some examples of players from the 2014 Rule 5 Draft who ended up sticking with their new club.
This year, top prospects Tyler Glasnow (Pirates), Orlando Arcia (Brewers) and Nomar Mazara (Rangers) are among those expected to be added to 40-man rosters ahead of Friday’s 11:59 p.m. ET deadline. MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo has provided a good breakdown of which top-30 prospects are eligible for this year’s Rule 5 Draft.
Here is a running list of top-30 prospects who have officially been added to their organization’s 40-man rosters and are thus protected from this year’s Rule 5 Draft:

The 2014 Rule 5 draft was one of the best of all time, as 10 of the 14 players in the major league portion stuck with new teams. Two outfielders (Delino DeShields and Odubel Herrera) and one first baseman (Mark Canha) saw regular playing time and a number of pitchers (led by Sean Gilmartin and J.R. Graham) proved they were more than just players being stashed for the future. That list could eventually grow by one. Daniel Winkler spent most of the season on the disabled list recovering from Tommy John surgery and therefore will still need to spend additional time on the Braves’ active roster to start 2016 to meet Rule 5 roster requirements.
It will be hard for this year’s Rule 5 draft to match that level of success, but it is a reminder why this matters.

That’s not good.
Most Notable: None. What happens if a team decides not to add any players for September? It may come close to happening in Miami. The Marlins have seven pitchers and two position players on the disabled list. They have not added anyone yet and with only two position players on the 40-man roster who aren’t currently on the big league roster and few healthy pitching options, they are unlikely to do much to change that.
