Not sure.....believe you can take more than 1 Rule V player correct?
If they can, I believe they will


You can take as many as you want.

Minor correction - you can continue to pick, round by round, until your 40-man roster is full.

Heh. Well, yeah. You have to keep a Rule 5 on the 40 man so you can't draft more than your 40 man will hold.

You have to keep them on the 25 man unless you want to offer them back to the original team.

It's pretty pointless to pick more then 1 in the major league portion.

One of my all time favorite Twins. And one of the most underrated players in franchise history.

Don't forget they changed the rules a few years ago, and it is less interesting now....I would go for a pitcher with one good pitch, put them in the pen, use them situationally so they look awesome, and then trade them.

If the team picks up the Lara kid from Tampa, Cuellar would have a full year to work with him on a changeup :).

I like your thinking. Stick him in the Pen for a year, teach him a change up. Cant be any worse than some of the guys we had at the start of the year last year in the bullpen.

I'd think a hard throwing pitcher or two could be added and used to potentially augment the pen a bit... A rebuilding team should be all over this.


This is exactly the spirit in which rule-5 was devised: to let the Have-Nots get a few of the crumbs the Haves let slip off their plate ... and it is galling that it's *my* team that is going to be the beneficiary.

You can. Once you don't pick then you are out of the draft.

I agree the team needs to take the highest upside guy available, roster spot be damned. With this teams chronic mis-use of the DL, they should be quite apt at dealing with a 24 man roster.

I hope the Twins select two players. You can look at them in the spring and try to work out a trade with the previous team that would allow you to keep them in the minors. If you give them back it only costs you $25,000. With the salaries today 25K is nothing

That makes a lot of sense. $25,000 seems like a reasonable wager.
