Does anyone have any info on how the following offseason is going to proceed? I haven't seen much reporting on it.

 

My main question, is there still going to be a Rule 5 Draft like normal, and who will the Twins need to protect? Will the rules change since the minors didn't play this year and so many guys lost an entire season?

I wrote this in January about who the team would need to add this offseason ahead of the Rule 5 draft.

Three of the four "Givens" were added during the season, and the other is certainly a given still.

 

I believe everything business-wise is still on, in terms of dates, including the Rule 5 draft. That said, may not be in person.

Even though they didn't play, 2020 still counts for those minor leaguers towards Rule 5 eligibility and for minor league free agency.

In addition to Seth's list, another great source for Rule 5 stuff is the Roster Resource pages now at Fangraphs:

 

https://www.fangraph...th-charts/twins

 

See the "Options" column. If it says "R5" that player is already Rule 5 eligible, otherwise it may say the date of the first draft when they will be eligible (so look for "Dec'20" to see who the first-time eligibles will be this winter).

Thanks for the link! I've spent my fair share of time on FG but didn't know they had this detailed list. This is awesome!

Here's a quickly updated rostering sheet you can play around with

 

Add a name to the bottom of any position column and it adds to 40 count

Put anything (drop. trade, denounce, exorcise, x) in the column right of a name to remove them from the count
