12/8/22 : Some 2022 Rule 5 Data to ponder

Updated: Dec 9, 2022



The Phillies selected 8 players ( 1 in the major league portion & 7 in the minor league portion ) in yesterday’s Rule 5 draft and had 5 selected from the organization by other teams - I highlighted each player in an article last night - https://www.philliesbaseballfan.com/post/12-7-22-rule-5-draft


The cost associated with selected a player in the rule 5 draft is $100,000 in the major league portion - the fee is paid to the team from which the player is selected.  Eligible players selected in the major league portion of the draft were left unprotected by non-inclusion on the 40 man major league roster.   The minor league player selection fee rises from $12,000 to $24,000 depending on the roster level that the player is listed.  Those fees are also paid directly to the team the player is selected from.  Eligible players selected in the minor league portion of the draft were left unprotected by non-inclusion on the 38 player minor league protection roster.


There were 82 players taken in the draft ( 15 in the major league portion and 67 in the minor league portion ).   The Pirates lost the most players in the draft ( 12 ) while the Phillies took the most ( 8 ).


Here’s a breakdown of how each of the 30 organizations were effected by yesterday’s draft.
