    Are you including guys in the lower levels because there are a few players who seem to do well at shortstop.

    Either way, you might add Luis Bolivar to the list. And why wouldn't Valaika play a capable middle infield?
    I think Valaika even with the knock that Mth is talking about is still a more than capable MI. He may not be ideal but he's certainly capable. Just semantics I know but perhaps the reason for the confusion here.

    I'd also like to throw Drew M. Anderson, Kevyn Feiner, and Jake Kahaulelio on the list.

    Re: Francisco Lizarraga

    I am not sure about the statement that he has to spend the season in Double-A or higher, unless that is a recent change. For a number of years, only players taken in the major league phase of the Rule V had assignment stipulations. Did you get that information from a good source? I have never heard of a player taken in the minor league Rule V being offered back to his former organization. I am curious about this because I figured Lizarraga was taken as insurance in the event that they decided Buchholz could not play shortstop and they would need a shortstop in Dayton.

    It seems like I have heard of that but according to this maybe not. However I don't know if this was posted before or after the previous CBA.

    Minor League Phases
    There are also two minor league phases to the Rule 5 draft: the AAA and AA phase. In addition to setting a 40-man roster, organizations are required to submit a AAA and AA roster of players eligible for the Rule 5 draft. Note that these rosters are larger than regular-season AAA and AA rosters and their composition during this phase is determined by the organizations evaluation of a player, not the player's current level; the organization will place players they value more highly on the AAA roster.

    After the Major League phase, the AAA phase takes place, in which other organizations can pluck players on other teams' AA rosters. During the AA phase, organizations can take Rule 5-eligible players on neither roster. The minor league Rule 5 draft is primarily a roster-filling exercise and players taken rarely reach the major leagues, not to mention establish themselves as big-league players. Unlike the Major League phase, players drafted in the AAA phase are not required to play at AAA, nor are AA draftees required to play in AA. It costs $12,000 to select a player in the AAA phase and $4,000 in the AA phase.
