2021 Minor League Rule 5 Draft Results Tracker



The major league portion of the Rule 5 Draft may be on hold, but the minor league phase rolls on as scheduled.

Teams will convene over teleconference on Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET. to select players.

You can find our preview of intriguing names who teams could covet. Several pitchers from both the Rays and Guardians organizations are on our radar.

Unlike the MLB Rule 5 draft, there are no roster restrictions or other rules when it comes to MiLB Rule 5 picks. Once a player is selected, the selecting team pays $24,500 to the previous team and the player is added to the selecting club’s Triple-A roster. That Triple-A roster designation is simply a procedural move—the player can be assigned to play at any level in the minors by his new team and there are no other roster requirements.

Of the 56 players selected in last year’s MiLB Rule 5 draft, 54 played for their new clubs, five reached the major leagues and 16 played in Triple-A.

Below, we'll track the results of each pick. The order is as follows.
