DateQuestionAnswer
2009-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Last year, Rule 5 pick David Patton spent a good chunk of the year on the Cubs' 15-day disabled list and was even allowed to rehab in the minor leagues. What prevents a team from inventing an injury for a Rule 5 pick, sticking him on the DL for most of the season, and developing him in the minors the following year?
(evolution from Chicago)
There is an investigation process for cheating the DL. Do clubs push the boundaries a bit? Absolutely, but an out and out lie and fabrication would be ugly. (Kevin Goldstein)
