It’s funny how one of the top picks for better teams in the Rule 5 drafts are left handed relief pitchers. That’s what the Braves used for their pick when they scooped up Robert Fish from the Angels. Fish has to play with the team the entire season or they give him back to the Angels but this guy put up some solid numbers in 2010.
With Double-A last year, he struck out 41 in 30 1/2 innings. This is actually Fish’s second go around because the Yankees picked him last year in the Rule 5 draft then he was put on waivers and the Royals picked him up. Because they didn’t put him on the 40 man, he was then shipped back to the Angels.
On the flip side, the Braves didn’t lose anyone in the Rule 5 draft. That’s neither at the MLB or MiLB draft.
