YearComment
2009 Matt Whitney was snatched up by the Nationals in the '07 Rule 5 draft, only to be returned when Jim Bowden realized that he wasn't a toolsy, athletic outfielder. Whitney's power fizzled after leading A-ball with 32 homers in '07, but the Nats followed up by signing him as a minor league free agent this winter.
2008 A first-round pick in 2002, Whitney blew out his knee in a pick-up basketball game prior to the 2003 season and wasn't the same until his shocking resurgence in last year, when he led all Indians minor leaguers with 32 home runs, which impressed the Nationals enough for them to select him in the Rule 5 draft. As a 24-year-old first baseman who has never played above A-Ball, his chances of sticking are slim, but they're a lot better than they were 12 months ago.
