When was the last time a Twins Rule 5 pick made the team for Opening Day? I honestly can't remember one since Santana.

That is pretty much correct. The Twins took Jared Camp with the first pick in that 1999 Rule 5 pick, and then traded him to Florida for the #2 pick (Santana). Here are their Rule 5 picks since: 2000 - Brandon Knight 2001 - None 2002 - Jose Morban (later spent time with O's) 2003 - None 2004 - Ryan Rowland-Smith (The Aussie has spent a lot of big league time) 2005 - Jason Pridie (was returned to TB, but obviously came back) 2006 - Alejandro Machado (spent year on DL, next year in Rochester, when healthy) 2007 - None 2008 - Jason Jones (spent one year in Rochester) 2009 - None 2010 - Scott Diamond 2011 - Terry Doyle
