    Nope but the Yanks must believe that he is healthy now and can hit and re-establish some trade value in order to protect him.

    Josh Smoker, Ryan Flarety, Jordan Danks and Trevor Reckling look like nice guys to take a flier on. Maybe Nick Barsne as well.

    Most of those guys will probably be gone by the time the Yanks pick. They have the 2nd to last pick

    Only Ryan Flarety was gone, we took Brad Meyers a RHSP from the Nats.

    #Royals pick LHP Cesar Cabral from Boston in Rule 5 Draft.

    #Royals immediately trade Cabral to Yankees for cash.

    Yanks also sent cash to Royals for lefty reliever Cesar Cabral, picked by Royals from the Red Sox organization.

    I really like the Meyers pick. He was the Nats minor league pitcher of the year in 2009. Struggled a bit at AAA after undergoing foot surgery, but assuming he's now healthy this could be a really nice acquisition by Cash.

    Scouts talked to liked both #Yankees Rule 5 picks. Called Meyers extreme strike thrower (0BBs, 36.1IP at Double-A this yr). Called Cabral good gamble because fastball/slider combo could work in majors against LHs, and competent vs. RHs due to changeup.

    Baseball America on the two players selected

    Cabral was also selected in the 2010 Rule 5 draft, which means that he is eligible for free agency if he passes through waivers rather than having to be offered back to his original team. Cabral keeps getting picked because he could be a useful left-on-left reliever with some history of success in the minors. He's been effective in the Dominican Winter League (1-0, 0.87). Cabral sinks his average (88-91) mph fastball that touches 93 mph, he has a decent changeup and throws a fringy slider.

    Like several of the players selected ahead of him, Meyers lacks a plus pitch, but he does have a feel for setting up hitters, and he throws a wide assortment of fringy pitches. Meyers has had success throughout his minor league career, and his 88-90 mph fastball could play up with a move to the pen where he can air it out.

    NOt sure they are worth cutting Golson.

    I wonder if they picked up Cabral based on what they saw in the winter leagues, like they did with Colon last year.

    I don't know much about the two other than what's been said in the past few posts but Golson is pretty much the definition of expendable, he's a pinch runner with a decent glove.
