Open Rule 5 Draft Thread

We've apparently already made a pick: Reegie Corona, out of the Yankees org. Light hitting shortstop, but I don't know much more about him beyond that.

More as we get it, of course.

Update: Dave thinks he's the new Willie Bloomquist.

Another update: What the hell his name is Reegie?

Another pick: Patrick Ryan, in the AAA portion of the draft, out of the Brewers. Strong groundballer but his strikeouts fell off a cliff in AA last year after being extremely effective in A+ in '07.

Yet Another Pick/Trade: In exchange for cash, we acquired Jose Lugo from the Twins via the Royals. Lugo's never been above High-A but he's a groundballer with good strikeout rates.
