Yes, I know it is early in the season, but with the draft a week from today I decided to give us just that much time to discuss the Rule V situation so we can focus a little more on the draft a little later on.
Potential Free spots: Andy Pettitte, Chad Gaudin, Jon Albaladejo, Sergio Mitre, Chan Ho Park, Boone Logan, Juan Miranda, Marcus Thames, Chad Moeller, Reegie Corona, Javy Vazquez
That's 10 spots and likely we will not use that many considering we may need a reliever and new bench player and DH. Plus Corona might be nice to keep instead of DFAing
First Time Eligible: Ryan Pope, Brad Suttle, Adam Olbrychowski, Damon Sublett, Austin Krum, Justin Snyder, Craig Heyer, Brandon Laird, Dan Kapala, Matt Cusick, Charles Nolte, Phil Bartleski, Dellin Betances, Zach McAllister, Noel Castillo, Jon Ortiz, Kelvin Perez, Dickson Marquez, Kelvin Castro, Walter Ibarra
2009 eligible: Colin Curtis, George Kontos, Tim Norton, Brian Baisley, Kevin Smith, Wilkins Arias, Melky Mesa, Jose Gil, Luis Nunez
2008 eligible: Lance Pendleton, Alan Horne, Eric Wordekemper, Kevin Whelan, Josh Schmidt, Marcos Vechionacci
2007 eligible: PJ Pillitere, Grant Duff
2005 eligible: Edwar Gonzalez
Laird and McAllister seem like the two obvious ones. Kontos and Curtis seem like good additions and Krum has played well recently. Of course Grant Duff has hit the spotlight. After that there are a lot of borderline guys and nobodies.
Who would you guys decide to protect?
