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 Betting Tips: Yankees @ Tigers 4/13

Thursday gave us our first push of the season. We did not get there in the manner I predicted, with three garbage time runs in the ninth, but it was not a loss. It was, however, another loss for our beloved Bombers.  Coming off of an intense rivalry series, the Yankees are in for an interesting few games betting wise as they take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park this weekend.

New York Yankees @ Detroit Tigers (04/13)

Jordan Montgomery (0-0, 4.82 ERA) vs. Mike Fiers (1-0, 0.00 ERA)

Jordan Montgomery did not have a stellar outing his last start. He got lit up, and looked nothing like the rock solid lefty he appeared to be last season in his rookie campaign. Tonight, he faces a terrible Tigers team that is batting nearly .200 against lefties.

A few days ago I declared this blog would no longer bet the Yankees money line, it was a bad omen when it happened. Unfortunately, tonight that is the obvious pick. If the Yankees lose, BBBetting is willing to take responsibility. The Yankees won’t lose though, and should have an easy night.

Final Call: Yankees ML (-165)
