The Phillies included 37 protected players on their Lehigh Valley roster. They were entitled to one selection and chose a RHP from the San Francisco organization.
The major league portion of the Rule 5 Draft has been postponed indefinitely, but the minor league portion is still being held this week.

I received an e-mail from Mitch Rupert about 10 days ago. He proposed stepping in to fill one of the voids when Mike Drago moved on from the Reading Eagle. He asked a bunch of people to continue to take part in Mike’s End of Season Top 20 Prospects Poll. Continue reading My Contribution to the 2021 Post Season Top 20
