You Play GM: 40 Man Roster

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?
