Yankees lose six players to the Rule-5 draft, acquire one

The Yankees’ minor league systems is deep even beyond the flashy prospects, and as a result, they had six players they chose not to protect on the 40-man roster selected by other clubs in the Rule-5 draft. Only one of the six Yankees, RHP Nick Green, was selected in the Major League phase, while five players were selected in the Triple-A phase. The Yankees chose one player of their own in the Triple-A phase in RHP Adonis De la Cruz. A friendly reminder for those who are not familiar with the Rule-5 draft, the teams who select these players must keep them on their active roster of either the Major League or Triple-A team, depending on the phase of selection, or be offered back to their former club. Here is a breakdown of Cruz and who the Yankees lost:

BBB Update: Top Prospect Countdown Coming Soon

Hey everyone. I just wanted to give everyone a quick update with what is upcoming on the Bronx Bomber Blog. First off, a few members of our team including myself (Chad Raines), Julian Bussells, Sammy Criscitello, Phil Akre and James Grande are working vigorously to come out with the BBB's first edition of the top prospect countdown. We’ve been working and conducting research through the weekend in hopes of getting our collaborative list together today. Therefore, this project will publically begin sometime this week. Our plan is to start with honorable mentions of those who just missed the cut, then write brief summaries on our top 30 prospects. We will start at number 30 and work our way down all the way to the top prospect in the organization daily to stay tuned with that.

Now is the time where we shift our focus on speculation about the offseason to previewing the 2016 season. With pitchers and catchers reporting in less than a month, this is an exciting time for baseball fans alike! By the time our prospect countdown is completed, the Yankees will be gearing up to play in their first Spring Training game, so that is certainly something to be excited about.

My apologies for the slow start in 2016, but we’re picking it up as the season draws closer. Thanks for sticking with us, and here’s to a great 2016 season.
