Default Rule V Draft Primer

If you aren't familiar with the rules, this is a nice and concise read:

I'm hoping for us to take a flyer on one of these unprotected relief pitchers.

I'm hoping the Astros didn't give away their first pick to the Padres in the Anthony Bass trade today.

There's a few relievers out there that could help them, and it's not too hard to stash a low inning relief pitcher on the roster all year.

Doesn't make much sense to me....

Would have preferred they take a chance on a high upside arm at the end of the bullpen.

Another Cuban player, and a switch-hitter, which is good.

I guess he's the backup this coming year, since it's a pretty big leap for him from high-A.

But with Flowers just recently signed and Phegley still on the roster, I don't see how they carry 3 catchers.
