        IMO with catching being super thin through out baseball it would be Josh Breaux. Surprised Gittens was protected over Wade and Josh. Britton is i'm sure a money issue .

          Too bad Lockridge doesn't have better plate discipline. He could have been our next Brett Gardner.

            YEA GOOD WHEELS....If selected will have to be on his game to stick...You called it, needs to wait for his pitch. A guy though who i thought was an Athlete more then Baseball player who has developed. So many guys like him take time...IMO they rely on athletic ability at lower levels because it works . Brandon has advanced but took time.

                Reason why Randy Vasquez is not Rule 5 eligible this year:-

                I reach the conclusion that Vasquez will not be eligible to be selected until December 2022 (assuming that the Rule 5 draft is left unchanged when and if there is a new CBA). Here is my reasoning:

                MLR5(c)(1)(A) provides that a player not on the 40 man as of the November cutoff date first becomes eligible to be taken in the fifth Rule 5 draft following his signing date to his first major or minor league contract, if the player is 18 years of age or younger on the June 5 immediately preceding the player’s initial signing.

                MLR5(c)(1)(B) provides that a player not on the 40 man as of the November cutoff date first becomes eligible to be taken in the fourth Rule 5 draft following his signing date to his first major or minor league contract, if the player is 19 years of age or over on the June 5 immediately preceding the player’s initial signing.

                I believe that those who say that Vasquez is eligible to be taken in the 2021 Rule 5 draft might be assuming that Vasquez comes under MLR5(c)(1)(B). After examination of the exact text of the rule (available to anyone at Cot’s Contracts) and the relevant Vasquez facts (available to anyone at the Randy Vasquez player page at MiLB.com), I believe that Vasquez’s initial eligibility for the Rule 5 draft is determined under MLR5(c)(1)(A).

                The relevant Vasquez facts are:

                1. Date of Birth: 11/3/1998

                2. Initial Signing Date: 5/21/2018

                3. The June 5 date immediately preceding 5/21/2018 was 6/5/2017.

                4. Anyone born on 11/3/1998 would be 18 years of age on 6/5/2017.

                5. Vasquez did not celebrate his 19th birthday until 11/3/2017.

                Although Vasquez was 19 years of age when he signed on 5/21/2018, Rule 5(c)(1) clearly provides that the actual age on the signing date is not determinative. The age on the June 5 immediately preceding the signing date is determinative.

                Therefore, the first Rule 5 draft following the signing was held in December 2018. Vasquez was not eligible to be picked.

                The second Rule 5 draft following the signing was held in December 2019, and, again Vasquez was not eligible to be picked.

                The third Rule 5 draft following the signing was held in December 2020, and, again Vasquez was not eligible to be picked.

                The fourth Rule 5 draft following the Vasquez signing is to be held in December 2021, and, under MLR5(c)(1)(A), Vasquez is not eligible to be picked, and the Yankees do not need to waste a 40 man roster space by protecting him a year prematurely.

                      I'm hoping Mr. Dunham can start the year @ AA. Left-handed 1Bman? could be on the fast track......

                      Maybe 3 years for Anthony Rizzo can be a nice Plan B in December or January, especially if they spend a lot on SS & CF..

                        Putting Dunham at first would be placing a real good Corner man at new position?

                          My bad. I totally got confused and thought he played 1B. I see he's a LF/CF guy. I'm sure you know much more about him than I do.

                            Well it's been done before moving players to first but in his case i wouldn't.

                                Well BA has us giving up Jhony Brito and Shawn Semple...I could see that as well. Both are power arms who could stick in BP roles...So funny how our mid ranged reviewed systems gets raided every R5 draft.
