Today is the annual Rule 5 draft, beginning at 12 PM EST. Here's an open discussion thread for morning rumors. We will live-blog the draft as it occurs will prospect reports posted for each player as quickly as possible.

Available players of intrigue include outfielder Delino DeShields of the Houston Astros, right-handers J.R. Graham and Cody Martin of the Atlanta Braves, outfielder Jared Mitchell of the Chicago White Sox, catcher Oscar Hernandez of the Tampa Bay Rays, left-hander Jarlin Garcia of the Miami Marlins, and right-hander Logan Verrett of the New York Mets.

Baseball America's J.J. Cooper posted a detailed preview of the Rule 5 draft late last month and it is worth your time to explore.

My guess is that the Rule 5 will be a little more interesting than normal this year. What's your take?
