See which prospects will be protected or exposed in Rule 5 Draft.

Minor League Baseball: Arizona Fall League-All Star Game Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

With the Winter Meetings less than one month away, every organization faces several key decisions centered around their farm system. The Rule 5 Draft will take place on December 13 in Las Vegas, during the annual meetings. Teams have until Tuesday evening at 8pm to decide which players they will protect, and which will be exposed.

Here’s a look at the official eligibility guidelines for the draft.

Basically, any prospect that falls into one of these classifications must be added to the 40-man roster prior to Tuesday’s deadline.

  • HS draft pick or international prospect in 2014 (under age 18)
  • College prospect in 2015 (over age 18)

If they are not protected, they become available to all eligible teams in the draft. Only teams with available roster spots (below the max-40) may make selections. If you’re trying to see where these prospects rank within our team ranks, we’ve begun releasing our Top 20 Prospect Lists for 2019.
