Cardinals didn’t lose anyone. Not surprised.
Lost Jacob Wilson in AAA portion, but gained a 17 year old?December 14, 2017 at 12:28 pm #39684
gained two outfielders i think… Selmo and someone else…
maybe we can quickly snatch up Wisdom, POncedeleon and some of the others available?December 14, 2017 at 1:12 pm #39691CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
Dont follow you JagerDecember 14, 2017 at 3:50 pm #39732
CC well since Wisdom and the other guys eligible for Rule 5 that didnt get picked dont they become minor league free agents or something? or do they stay with us? Id be happy to keep all of them
maybe i am mixing up my rules….i probably amDecember 14, 2017 at 4:19 pm #3973614NyquisTParticipant
We picked up a AA OF in Moreno that wouldn’t make our top-50 IMO. Selmo is a 17 y.o OF who Brian has placed at the DSL level. Presently, they appear on the Memphis roster because of MiLB draft rules, but I believe that they may be assigned to any level when camps open.December 14, 2017 at 5:17 pm #39742
Jager, you did mix up free agency and Rule 5. The two are not connected.
For those who subscribe, I posted up a 1900-word article about Rule 5 at midday today.December 14, 2017 at 6:21 pm #39748CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
Nope Jag, they are ours for the at least the next year unless we cut or trade them.December 14, 2017 at 6:52 pm #39749forsch31ParticipantFree
Jager, if I remember correctly, 6 years after first signing a contract, any player not on a 40 man MLB roster becomes a minor league free agent. A player not on a 40 man roster is eligible for the rule 5 draft 3 or 4 years, depending on some circumstances, after first signing a contract.December 15, 2017 at 11:37 am #39806
wait… so they are still with us for at least one more year then? So we don;t need to re-sign them or anything?
I am a bit confused obviously..
but if we get to hold them another year at least (if we want) that is wonderful news IMO
I really want to see if Wisdom turned a corner and I really want to see Ponce back on that moundDecember 15, 2017 at 4:03 pm #39831

Jager, I wrote two articles that explain player-by-player which ones were free agent eligible and why. Here are the links.
Rule 5 eligibility is separate and distinct from free agency. Different rules to qualify. Again, I went through a lot of detail to explain which players were Rule 5 eligible and why. Here is the article.
Please read them as I think they will help you better understand. I will try to answer questions if you have any after that.December 15, 2017 at 4:12 pm #39833
thanks Brian… i appreciate the links!
Things always seem to get muddied up in my head around Rule 5 timeDecember 15, 2017 at 4:30 pm #39836
Yes, it can get very complicated. I try to break it down for readers, but even the explanations can get very detailed.
