    Agree, its quite possible they choose to not pursue an 8th inning guy, but my general point was that there aren't as many slots available as it might seem, given the expected re-signs and roster holes they need to fill.

    Edit: Just read your other post. I don't think the Yankees place high value on him. He really doesn't fit their plans in the next 1-2 years, and has younger more talented arms ready to over take him. The missed opportunity might be if they don't try to trade him in a minor deal ... a la Miranda.

    I wouldn't be surprised if one of Nova, Phelps and/or DJ Mitchell ended up in the pen out of ST.

    I think it is a lock that Nova makes the team in some role- long man with Aceves? However, the Yanks probably keep Phelps and DJ in AAA to remain viable near-ML ready SP in case they need to make a deal.

    Yanks select Robert Fish, LHPAngels), who's just 22 and has a fastball that reaches 95. Fish got rocked in Double-A (8.93 ERA in 42 innings) but overall struck out 73 in 58 innings in 2010.

    Re: Rule V

    Yankees select Daniel Turpin rhp, Red Sox: Boston got Turpen from the Giants for Ramon Ramirez, a deal the Giants are quite pleased about right now. Turpen was a swingman on Oregon State's back-to-back College World Series champions in 2006-2007 and has worked as a reliever in pro ball, reaching Double-A in 2010. He's more notable for throwing 92-94 mph from a low, almost sidearm slot than for his performance (69 IP, 28-60 BB-S0, 7-6, 4.30 overall mark). Lefthanded hitters batted .299 against him in 2010, including a .417 clip in the AFL.

    Kind of sucks to lose Kontos. Kind of saw it coming when he wasn't protected. Hopefully he will be back.

    Re: Rule V

    Losing Kontos is annoying, I can see him sticking around in San Diego considering that he has already pitched in AAA before.
    Keep him in the back end of the pen and hope for the best, they might.

    I'm not fully up on my rule 5 rules, has he been selected before or do I have him confused with someone else, Kroenke maybe? If he has previously been slected if/when he gets offered back to NYY can he decline and elect minor league FA status?

    I dont think he has been selected before and I think he'd have to come back to us. But yeah, seen as this was his first time exposed to this draft he definitely would come back to us and thats what I am hoping for.

    Fish sounds interesting but can't see him sticking on the active roster all year. Kontos might have made more sense to keep for me.

    I don't see either sticking. If they perform in spring training, maybe a trade can be made and they can be sent down.

    Re: Rule V

    I'd rather we kept Kontos and Pendleton than draft Fish and Turpin. That said we'll see how it pans out. I'm not at all surprised that Kontos and Pendleton were selected. Kontos could make it in SD's bullpen and Pendleton has a shot at the Houston rotation or bullpen. I think we may get Kontos back depending on how he recovers from injury, but I'd be surprised if Pendleton comes back. He seems like a great fit in the NL, but we'll see.

    Regarding our picks. Fish is intriguing and worth a shot, but I'd be surprised if either guy sticks.

    Re: Rule V

    Yankees: Robert Fish, LHP (from Angels): The best combination of left-handedness and velocity available, Fish has a plus-plus fastball for a southpaw, but it's straight, he can't command it, and he doesn't have a second pitch.

    ........

    Yankees: Daniel Turpen, RHP (from Red Sox): Reliever with low-90s sinker finished strong in Arizona Fall League with eight straight scoreless appearances; most entertaining rumor of the day involves the Yankees selected him as a jab at Boston, with Turpen thought to be on the list of potential PTBNLs to San Diego in the Adrian Gonzalez deal.

    If Pendleton doesn't come back, then I'm really happy for him. I don't know if he would have helped the Yankees ever even though I have rooted for him.

    If Kontos doesn't come back, then I'll be kind of upset because I had a lot of hopes for him.
