    Cardinals didn’t lose anyone. Not surprised.

    Lost Jacob Wilson in AAA portion, but gained a 17 year old?

    gained two outfielders i think… Selmo and someone else…

    maybe we can quickly snatch up Wisdom, POncedeleon and some of the others available?

    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.

    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.

    Nope Jag, they are ours for the at least the next year unless we cut or trade them.

    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.

    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 mound

    Yes.

    No.

    Jager, I wrote two articles that explain player-by-player which ones were free agent eligible and why. Here are the links.
    https://thecardinalnation.com/projected-2017-cardinals-minor-league-free-agents/
    https://thecardinalnation.com/impact-of-departing-and-returning-cardinals-minor-league-free-agents/

    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.
    https://thecardinalnation.com/the-cardinal-nations-2017-rule-5-protection-picks/

    Please read them as I think they will help you better understand. I will try to answer questions if you have any after that.

    Yes, it can get very complicated. I try to break it down for readers, but even the explanations can get very detailed.
