When one throws mid-90s fastballs in the Arizona Fall League, they tend to pop up in conversations. He'll throw a slider and curve, with the slider being better breaking choice. His command has been spotty at best, but he goes right after hitters. With his size and a potential two-pitch power repertoire, he does have the chance to be a good left-handed reliever at the big league level.
    Keck does look interesting, Braulio Lara is another to keep an eye on. Walt needs a second lefty for the bullpen, and here are two budget minded lottery tickets.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Baltimore INF Ty Kelly: In some ways, Kelly is pretty similar to Figueroa; he’s a grinder that makes consistent contact and gets on base with more walks than strikeouts in his career. Defense is a big difference though. While Kelly doesn’t play shortstop, he has spent some time in the outfield which gives him some nice versatility. In 2012, he went from high-A to AA, and while his power decreased at every level, but his very good plate approach and feel for contact remained the same. A switch hitter, Kelly is probably better batting left handed, but he was pretty even between the two last year. He has more power from the left side, and swings a bit more from the right side.

    Tampa Bay INF Cole Figueroa: Figueroa is pretty much the quintessential 25th man on a roster. He’s played mostly second and third base, but that’s because most of his career has been spent on the same roster with one highly touted shortstop or another, starting with Drew Cumberland with the Padres and then Tim Beckham and Hak-Ju Lee with the Rays. His ability to step in and play the occasional shortstop makes him a true utility player, and that would allow Freddy Galvis to return to AAA to play every day where he belongs. He doesn’t have the power the Phillies are hoping to add this offseason, but the left handed hitter makes good contact, finds ways to get on base with a career 12.1 BB%, and he has a little bit of speed too.

    San Diego C Jason Hagerty: The Rule 5 draft might be Hagerty’s best path to the majors because it just seems like Yasmani Grandal can’t get out of his way. At Miami as an amateur, Hagerty had to move to first base to accommodate Grandal, and of course now, Grandal is San Diego’s #1 catcher. He has fine potential of his own though, but a shoulder injury led to a down 2012 season. The 25 year old is a switch hitter with power, but the shoulder problem sapped his power and hurt his batting average. His .248 BA was the lowest he’s had since he hit the full season leagues, but one positive sign is that his walk and strikeout rates were similar if not better than most years in his career. Behind the plate, his defensive ceiling is just average, but if he pans out, his bat makes that a fair tradeoff. The Phillies seem set at catcher, but it wouldn’t hurt to give Erik Kratz and Humberto Quintero some competition.

    It would be a very interesting move if the Reds took Jason Hagerty. Where would he project in the catching rankings list of prospects?

    Anyone have a link for the Rule 5 draft audio? I'm not seeing it popping up on MLB.com.

    2012 RULE 5 DRAFT ORDER

    1. Astros. 2. Cubs. 3. Rockies. 4. Twins. 5. Indians. 6. Marlins. 7. Red Sox. 8. Royals. 9. Blue Jays. 10. Mets. 11. Mariners. 12. Padres. 13. Pirates. 14. Diamondbacks. 15. Phillies. 16. Brewers. 17. White Sox. 18. Dodgers. 19. Cardinals. 20. Tigers. 21. Angels. 22. Rays. 23. Orioles. 24. Rangers. 25. Athletics. 26. Giants. 27. Braves. 28. Yankees. 29. Reds. 30. Nationals.



    This year's buzz starts with two hard-throwing pitchers who were identified in BA's two previews. Lefthander Braulio Lara of the Rays was the leading rumor to be picked first overall by the Astros, who have the No. 1 spot for the second straight season. General manager Jeff Luhnow said this morning the Astros expect to be active in the Rule 5 draft, and last year Houston kept two Rule 5 picks in righthander Rhiner Cruz and infielder Marwin Gonzalez.



    Dominguez, 22, also has a fastball that has touched 100 mph and earns some 80 grades for his fastball. He also has a 25-game MLB suspension waiting for him to start the 2013 season for a violation of the drug-treatment program.

    Other players expected to be selected include righthander Josh Fields of the Red Sox, the 27-year-old former Georgia closer, and catcher Jason Hagerty of the Padres. The 25-year-old had a huge 2010 season at low Class A Fort Wayne (.917 OPS) but has missed time the last two years with a variety of injuries, including back problems that limited him to 77 games in 2012. Hagerty's a switch-hitter who draws walks (.377 career OBP), but he struggled defensively in 2012, leading the Texas League with 11 errors and throwing out just 21 percent of baserunners.

    Re: Rule V draft thread

    We still have one spot on our 40 man roster right now, right?

    BTW, I found the link to the online broadcast. I forgot Nashville is on Central Time, hence why the broadcast hasn't started.
