He probably will go quickly to someone. I cant imagine someone not jumping on him. Good playerother than last year, ca play anywhere. I would rather have him than Tabata.

Not that it matters, because they didn’t leave anyone important off, but Hunter Strickland? That is interesting that they thought there was a chance that he could not only be picked, but had a chance to stick somewhere. I pictured him back at AA as a starter this year, he wasn’t much as a reliever. Jeff Inman seems a heck of a lot more likely to be picked. Odd choices they make at rule V time every year
