    Rule 5 date possibly changed.

    The above dates are confirmed. On the unconfirmed side, there is word that the Rule 5 draft may be moved to November 20th. The Rule 5 draft typically marks the end of the Winter Meetings, but that gathering takes place from December 6-9 this year in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
    The goal here, according to Stark, is to lengthen the offseason free agent negotiating period, resulting in fewer unsigned players in February and March.

    Minor League Transactions: Nov. 1-8


    Teams have until Nov. 20, that's a week from Saturday, to finalize 40-man rosters in preparation for the Rule 5 draft. So what you're seeing in this installment is teams adding players to the 40-man, such as Melky Mesa (Yankees), Erik Cordier (Braves) and Cole Garner (Rockies), so that they would not qualify for minor league free agency
