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

[quote name='SpiritofVodkaDave'][quote name='Brock Beauchamp'][quote name='ScottyB'][quote name='Brock Beauchamp'][quote name='greengoblinrulz']Not sure.....believe you can take more than 1 Rule V player correct?
If they can, I believe they will[/QUOTE]

You can take as many as you want.[/QUOTE]

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

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.[/QUOTE]

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.[/QUOTE]

Said 40, meant 25.

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.
