The Orioles Rule! … (5)

Rule 5 draft pick Joey Rickard will be a member of the Orioles after a scorching spring. He is the fourth Rule 5 pick in the past five years to make the O’s opening day roster.

Here’s the rundown:

2015 – Joey Rickard (from Tampa Bay)

2014 – Jason Garcia (from Houston via trade)

2012 – T.J. McFarland (from Cleveland)

2011 – Ryan Flaherty (from Chicago Cubs)

Here’s a Rule 5 draft primer from Camden Chat.

Every player with the required amount of minor league service time that’s not on a team’s 40-man roster is eligible for the Rule 5 draft. Generally speaking, that means for players drafted out of high school, they become eligible in the fifth Rule 5 draft after their amateur draft … College players become eligible in the fourth Rule 5 draft after they are selected.
