Today, the Mets have to submit their reserve list for the Rule Five draft held on the final day of the Baseball Winter Meetings in Dallas, TX. A player is eligible for selection if he is not on a Major League 40-man roster and:
– signed at 19 or over as part of the 2008 draft class or earlier
– signed at 18 or younger during 2007 or earlier.
Here’s the Mets current 40-man roster.
The no-brainer adds for me: Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Reese Havens, Jeurys Familia and Juan Lagares.
Plus velocity from the left-side means he gets a spot: Robert Carson
Far away, but I think gets the nod: Cesar Puello
Tough calls: Collin McHugh, Jefry Marte and Wilmer Flores
How would you play it?
