NFT: MLB Hotstove Angels loading up and Rule 5 draft

superspynyg : 12/14/2017 8:59 am
Angles add Kinzler and have a good lineup now
2b Kinzler
CF Trout
LF Upton
DH Pujols
RF Calhoun
SS Simmons
3b Escobar
C Maldonado
Plus they added Ontani. If their rotation can stay healthy look out AL west!!

Yanks intersested in E Nunez as is the Red Sux and Toronto. I would love him back for3 3b. 300 hitter.

Rule 5 draft starts today!!!


Left handed

pitchers are hard to come by.

Fully expect the Yankees to lose the two they exposed to today's Rule 5 draft- Nestor Cortes and Stephen Tarpley.
Angels were also the team to score prospect Maitan from Atlanta.

That's not a particularly good lineup  
Greg from LI : 12/14/2017 9:31 am : link
It's one transcendent superstar, one very good hitter (Upton) a guy who may or may not repeat a career year (Simmons), and a collection of stiffs. Kinsler will turn 36 next season and stunk last year.
oh, and someone else can take Eduardo Scissorhands

Already saw that show in the Bronx, don't need a repeat performance.

43 players were taken in the Rule 5 Draft  
YANKEE28 : 12/14/2017 9:55 am : link

Anyelo Gomez RH P

Thanks for posting this YANKEE28. What do you think of their chances of staying with their selected teams for the year?
I'll be interested to see what happens with Mike Ford

He's never been considered a real prospect, but he really hit well last season.
Braves nabbed Gomez.

scouts have noted that Anyelo Gomez has that "it" factor as a young pitcher. He could be the biggest loss among the four.

The Yankees farm system is just loaded with right handed pitching talent. You can't protect them all.
No interest in Nunez

Last year the Braves claimed LH reliever Jacob Lindgren from the Yankees and he is healthy and expected to be a big part of their bullpen. The Braves bullpen is almost completely comprised of ex Yankees with Gomez, Lindgren, Vizcaino, Whitley, and Ramirez.
in the minor league portion of the draft...  
Mike in St. Louis : 12/14/2017 12:39 pm : link
the Yankees claimed OF Junior Soto from the Indians and lost RHP Yancarlos Baez and C Sharif Othman...

Soto is 20, from the DR, and had pretty bad stats in A ball last year...he signed with the Indians as an IFA at age 16...
