BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 A Rule 5 draftee, Patton had knocked around the foothills of the Rockies system for five years, never getting past High-A Modesto. The Cubs obviously saw something in his fastball/slider combo that they liked, taking him north out of spring training and letting him throw some low-leverage innings before a case of roster-crunch groin kept his name on the 25-man but his body rehabbing in the bus leagues. After a few dozen nondescript big-league innings, Patton’s fortune reads "Ask Again Later."

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)
