Yankees lost none, gained none in Rule 5 Draft


The Rule 5 Draft went down this morning, but the Yankees neither gained any players nor lost any either. It would have been hard to add players since their 40-man roster is full.

42 players were selected in total so perhaps the Yankees were a bit lucky, but they have done a good job protecting their picks recently with players like Brett Marshall, Jose Ramirez, Nik Turley, and Ramon Flores on the 40-man roster despite having little chance to help the Yankees in 2013 (although maybe I shouldn’t have included Marshall on that list).
