MLB 2009 Rule 5 Eligible Players

I’ve seen a lot of people looking for Rule 5 information from other teams around the league, most likely in order to try and take a guess as to who the Pirates could pick. I don’t have a complete list, but below you will find links to sites that list Rule 5 eligible players for their respective team.

Not every site is a complete list. Some sites only mention notable names. Also, some of these articles were done before November 20th, which means you’d probably need to double check the team’s 40-man roster to see if a player was protected. There were a few teams that I couldn’t find information for. If you know of any sites that have information on the missing teams, or you know of any sites that have a better list than the ones I’ve linked to below, feel free to leave a link in the comments section.

Check out my preview of some of the best players available:
