2010 Pittsburgh Pirates Rule 5 Eligible Players

2010 Pittsburgh Pirates Rule 5 Eligible Players

Owens is one of many players who needs to be protected for the 2010 Rule 5 draft.

The biggest issue with the upcoming roster crunch will be the players who are eligible for the 2010 Rule 5 draft, which takes place on December 9th, 2010.  The following is the complete list of Pittsburgh Pirates players who are eligible for the Rule 5 draft.

The first group of players are eligible for minor league free agency, which I went over yesterday.  If these players re-sign with the Pirates as minor league free agents before the draft, they would be eligible.

Brian Bass
Doug Bernier
Rodolfo Cardona
Yung Chi Chen
Dana Eveland
Hector Gimenez
Corey Hamman
Derek Hankins
Mitch Jones
Erik Kratz
Jean Machi
Kevin Melillo
Dustin Molleken
Brian Myrow
Greg Picart
Jeremy Powell
Milver Reyes
James Skelton
Jonathan Van Every
Tyler Yates

The next group of players have been previously eligible for the Rule 5 draft, but aren't eligible for minor league free agency yet.
