LAS VEGAS—We found the ballroom, and I’ll be here to live blog the Rule 5 draft. This is either the third, fourth or fifth straight year that we have live blogged the Rule 5, and I’m always surprised by the traffic and interest we get in the Rule 5. Then again, this decade has been one of Rule 5 draftee stars.
Well, I’m not sure Terrell Young will be a star . . . I’m also not sure he’ll be a National. Late word just before the draft starts here has the Nats trading Young or selling his contract to another club.
We’re also hearing some more buzz on a couple of names we should have blogged last night—Zack Kroenke, a lefthander out of Nebraska who has pitched in the Yankees system. He pitched in relief at Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, going 7-0, 2.85 with 54 strikeouts in 53 2/3 innings.
We’ll go live with the first pick and subsequent picks as soon as the draft starts.
