2022 Major League Baseball Rule 5 Draft Preview Version 2.0 - $

Baseball America with some possible Rule 5 Draft options. Ramos looked good in some AFL games I watched. Noda’s profile is always an interesting one, although it seems to be going a little out of style.

Jose Ramos, OF, Dodgers

One of the most highly regarded prospects left exposed to this year’s Rule 5 draft, Ramos is a power-hitting corner outfielder with the ability to handle center in a pinch. Ramos hit .249/.339/.479 with 22 doubles and 25 home runs across 123 games, primarily with High-A Great Lakes, before finishing his 2022 season with Glendale of the Arizona Fall League, where he hit .275/.326/.463 with three home runs over 20 games. Ramos ranked as the Dodgers’ 17th-best prospect after the August update, and is among the top outfielders in the system. At just 21 years old and with no experience above the High-A level, Ramos might not have the necessary polish at the plate to stick on a big league roster if selected. He will be one of the more noteworthy players available, however.Jose Ramos, OF, Dodgers

Ryan Noda, 1B, Dodgers

Drafted by the Blue Jays in the 15th round of the 2017 draft out of Cincinnati, Noda has never produced an on-base percentage below .372 over any of his four minor league seasons. He’s hit .264/.407/.486 with 107 doubles and 94 home runs across 555 professional games. Noda was acquired by the Dodgers prior to 2021 and hit .250/.383/.521 with 29 home runs over 113 games with Double-A Tulsa. He was left exposed for the Rule 5 draft that never happened in 2021 and despite a .259/.395/.474 line over 135 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City in 2022, Noda was again left off the Dodgers crowded 40-man roster. Despite below-average contact skills, Noda manages his whiffs enough that his elite plate discipline (20% chase rate in 2022) and plus power still play. Noda’s power is notable as he’s slugged 54 home runs combined over his last two seasons and has the exit velocity data to back that up with an 89 mph average exit velocity, a 105.8 mph 90th percentile average and a hard hit rate of 44.8%—while getting on base nearly 40% of the time and keeping his strikeout rate below 30% in the upper minors. Noda is one of the better first base defenders in the minor leagues, with the ability to handle a corner outfield spot in a pinch. With lefthanded power, on-base ability and some defensive value and versatility, Noda is one of the more well-rounded Rule 5 sluggers.

Each club’s most intriguing unprotected Rule 5 Draft option

Padres: Korry Howell, UTIL (No. 9)
The pickoff limits coming to MLB in 2023 could lead to an uptick in stolen bases, similar to the one we’ve seen in the Minors. That’ll make it even more valuable to have a plus-plus speedster available off the bench. Enter Howell. The 24-year-old also has some versatility with experience at all three outfield spots, as well as second base and short in 2022. His bat hasn’t been tested above Double-A, but the overall skills could get him a role as a Rule 5 pick.

Baseball America: Major League Baseball 40-Man Roster Additions Ahead Of Roster Deadline ($)

Geoff Pontes with short write-up of every player added to a 40-Man.

Juan Brito, 2B: The infielder was acquired by the Guardians from the Rockies in exchange for Nolan Jones in the hours leading up to the deadline. Brito fits an archetype the Guardians have had success with in recent years—a switch-hitter with advanced plate discipline and strong bat-to-ball skills. This style of player is so synonymous with the Guardians that a longtime scout texted me in the aftermath of the trade saying “Brito was always a Guardians prospect, they just needed to make it official.” In this way Brito fits the Guardians style of play—a high-contact hitter with developed skills as a hitter looking to add impact as he ages. If Brito is able to grow into more strength and power he could develop into an above-average hitter in the major leagues at peak.

Toughest Rule 5 Draft decisions for each team

Probably the biggest name in the article. If Indigo Diaz isn’t protected I’m sure he’d be the most likely to get drafted.

Giants: Hunter Bishop, OF (No. 23)
The best college athlete in the 2019 Draft, in which he went 10th overall out of Arizona State, Bishop has been plagued by injuries and missed time again this year with a strained oblique. He managed to play in a career-high 86 games but hit just .235/.320/.406 with 13 homers and 20 steals in High-A at age 24 while striking out at a 33 percent clip.

Arizona Fall League 40-man roster Rule 5 Draft 2022

Does he hit with enough power and can he find a defensive home?

Edouard Julien, 2B, Twins (No. 14): The 2019 18th-rounder out of Auburn has won not one, but two Player of the Week honors already and is certainly in contention for AFL MVP—an award won by fellow Twin Royce Lewis in 2019. Entering this week, Julien leads the Fall League in OBP (.535), slugging (.683), OPS (1.218), walks (20) and runs scored (21) through 19 games with Glendale. His .365 average, five homers and 10 extra-base hits also ranked among the top five in the loop.

Julien already showed a strong approach that led to a .300/.441/.490 line and 19.3 percent walk rate over 508 plate appearances at Double-A Wichita during the regular season, making him a likely add for Minnesota anyway. These past five weeks have moved that modifier from “likely” to “certain.”
