The Rule 5 draft is over

Continuing where we left off earlier . . .

  • The Jays pick Zech Zinicola from the Nationals;

  • The Brewers pick Chuck Lofgren from the Indians;

  • The Cubs take Mike Parisi from the Cardinals;

  • The Rays take Armando Zerpa from the Red Sox;

  • The Mariners take pitcher Kanekoa Texeira from the Yankees.  How many dim Yankees fans thought it was Mark?

  • The Giants take Steve Johnson from the Orioles;

  • The Cardinals pick Ben Jukich from the Reds; and

  • The Phillies take Kenneth Herndon from the Angels.

I take it back: if you know these people you didn’t draft them and you’re not their momma.  They’re so anonymous that to know them you have be one of these people.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.

Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.

Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
