The Rule 5 Draft (Orioles Edition)
The Orioles chose left-handed pitcher Benjamin Snyder from the Fresno roster of the San Francisco Giants with the third pick in the Rule V Draft.
Don't get too attached to him, because there are reports that he is headed to the Rangers as the player to be named in the Kevin Millwood deal.
The Washington Nationals had the first pick in the draft and chose outfielder Jamie Hoffman from the Dodgers, but he also will not stick around long. He is the player to be named in the Brian Bruney deal and will be sent to the Yankees.
