A brief look at the Yankees and the Rule 5 Draft

A brief look at the Yankees and the Rule 5 Draft

How did the Yankees fare at the Rule 5 Draft, this year and in year’s past? At the conclusion of the winter meetings in Las Vegas, the 2018 Rule 5 Draft took place.

The obvious choice would be to break the bank for Manny Machado, who at just 26 years old, would be another elite talent in the Bombers’ lineup for years to come. However, it’s unclear if they’re willing to spend that kind of money. There’s a chance they could be looking for a cheaper infielder on a shorter contract, which could lead the Yanks to Daniel Murphy. Murphy enjoyed immense...
