Prospectus Feature: Rule 5 Review

9

BP Prospect Staff

A look at the MLB Rule 5 draft, and some interesting names in the Triple-A phase.

Round 1

1. The Padres (via Twins) select Miguel Diaz, RHP (Milwaukee Brewers)
The easiest thing to stash in the rule 5 is a pitcher you can stick in the bullpen and maybe on the disabled list if you need to. The Padres successfully retained Luis Perdomo last year, and Diaz is a decent bet to stick for them this year too. He’s not ready for the majors in terms of polish, but he can hit 98 with his fastball, will flash a plus slider, and has feel for a change. It’s a starter’s arsenal (down the line) but the effort in his delivery make the bullpen a likely destination, especially if he’s going to miss development time (or experience it in the majors). He missed significant time in 2015 with an arm injury, so the Padres finding a way to stash him on the DL wouldn’t surprise either. -CG

2. The Padres (via Reds) select Luis Torrens, C (New York Yankees)
Torrens, a skilled defender with plus raw power who signed for $1.3 million out of Venezuela, was one of the best prospects exposed. The Yankees took a gamble that his extreme lack of experience—only 198 plate appearances in full-season ball—due to recurring shoulder injuries that cost him all of 2015 and part of 2016 would get him through. It wasn’t a bad bet, but the Padres made one of their two deals to nab him. With Derek Norris traded and Christian Bethancourt being exposed to a super-duper-utility role, it’s easy to envision Torrens sticking as Hedges’ backup, but he’s realistically nowhere near ready to contribute yet. -JS
