For failing to sign top overall pick Brady Aiken, the Houston Astros will get the 2nd pick in 2015 draft as well their their regular pick. The teams with the 10 worst records (top 11 picks) have their first round pick protected if they signed a qualified free agent this offseason.

"The Cubs feel like Russell played close to a full season after 10 extra games in Arizona, where he hit .190 in 42 at-bats and got some time at second base."
78 games (counting AFL)...yeah, that's a full season.
hope he really is healthy.
Russell done with AFL after today.
I know I do this every year, but I'm in a 12-team Fangraphs Ottoneu league and we're down some owners. Let me know if you're interested. $10 fee to Fangraphs for the year and we all paid in $40 last year for prize money, but the $40 is negotiable. Year-round activity...
if Kansas City were to beat the Cardinals this would be more fun for me, but a Giants win does make all the Dodgers fans I'm around sulk, so that's nice.
Awesome, thanks for the insight.
Long time lurker some time commenter here...I was at the AFL game AZ Phill was at and I'd have to concur that Vogelbach may be the worst fielder, period, that I've seen. Terrible hands, footwork, reactions, instincts, the whole shebang. This is a limited eyeball test so take it for what it's worth. My dad was with me and he actually referred to him as Dr. Strangeglove 2.0. His body type seems to be key inhibitor here as he's simply not built to move. He can rake, for sure, but there's no way he does anything other than DH if he makes it to the bigs.
That doesn't fit well with Theo's versatility campaign, now does it. If I was Theo, because I have a somewhat dark sense of humor, I'd play him every position in the infield.
No Raul Ibanez on WS roster, Royals become first team in WS without a player who didn't play in the 20th Century.
tell em wash
it's tough being a billionaire in obama's america.
maybe the cubs could do a Kickstarter campaign. i'm down for $5.
I think the fact that the PTBNL the Cubs owe Boston is supposedly to be named after the Rule 5 Draft might suggest that the Red Sox will be able to select a PTBNL from the list of Cubs minor leaguers who were eligible for selection in the Rule 5 Draft but were not drafted. Or it could be that the Cubs will select a player in the Rule 5 Draft for the Red Sox and then send that player to Boston as the PTBNL after the conclusion of the draft, although that is less likely because the Red Sox actually select ahead of the Cubs in the Rule 5 Draft (Red Sox se
from what I recall, the player the Cubs are suppose to get from A's is "signficant" but not that signficant to change the opinion of the trade (I think that was Keith Law's take).
The player we owe the Red Sox I don't know about, guessing cash may be enough.
Guessing post Rule 5 draft this will get tidied up.
DAVID P: The PTBNL must be named or cash substituted within six months of the date the trade is reported to the MLB office.
don't they spend all their money on the Cubs?
Phil - the Cubs have a PTBNL coming from the A's after the draft. What are the rules in this case. I am pretty sure it couldn't be anyone that was on the 25 man roster after the trade, but could it be someone on the 40 man roster?
not being able to play 1st is just kinda sad...
it's a much harder position, but one of the worst displays of D i've ever seen is bj upton playing SS in AAA. it was absolutely amazing how horrible he was there in every single aspect of playing the position...and he got multiple seasons to showcase how awful he was there.
