Rule 5 Draft Newsbeat

For Rule 5 Draft Picks, PEDs Pay Way Too Well

For the Phillies, Stumpf’s suspension will actually make it easier to keep him on the roster. Rule 5 players cannot be sent to the minors during their Rule 5 selection season. But they also must remain on the active roster for at least 90 days before they are free and clear of Rule 5 eligibility requirements. Because of Stumpf’s suspension, the Phillies don’t have to worry about carrying him on the active roster for the rest of the first half of the season. Now 32 of those 90 days on the active roster could come after Sept. 1 when the expanded rosters means a team can carry a Rule 5 pick without otherwise limiting their roster.

What this suspension indicates is that there might be a need for a rule tweak in the next collective bargaining agreement. Because as it stands right now, the risk/reward of performance enhancing drugs for a potential Rule 5 pick is often dramatically slanted toward taking PEDs.

Phillies Expected To Take Goeddel First In Rule 5 Draft

Your Rule 5 draft thread!

Multiple teams told Baseball America that they expect the Phillies to take Rays outfielder Tyler Goeddel No. 1 overall in Thursday’s Rule 5 draft. It it happens as expected Goeddel will become the second consecutive Rays’ prospect to be picked first in the Rule 5 draft.

Catcher Oscar Hernandez was taken by the Diamondbacks No. 1 in last year’s Rule 5 draft.

Goeddel, a supplemental first-round pick in 2011, has ranked among the Rays’ Top 20 prospects in three of the past four seasons. A move from third base to the outfield helped him this year as he proved to be a much better fit out of the dirt. He played all three outfield positions this past season. While he’s not a center fielder in the majors, Goeddel runs well and is athletic to go with one of the better approaches available in the Rule 5 draft.

Who the Reds will pick at No. 2 is much less certain. The names being bounced around the most are Cardinals righthander Luis Perdomo, a hard-throwing Class A starter who has three present pitches and solid control, and Twins righthander Zack Jones, a hard-throwing reliever who can sit in the high 90s. The Braves pick No. 3 but their target was Goeddel. With him gone (and Daniel Winkler from the 2014 Rule 5 draft still needing further big league time) they would be happy now to trade out of the spot. The Rockies, picking fourth, have also seemed willing to trade out of the spot.
