Callis will be live tweeting the picks at the BA account. 20 teams have open 40 man spots, so it could be a somewhat interesting day.

I wonder if that's the Theo compensation

Gonzalez split time between AA and AAA in 2011.

Tennessee (AA): 216 AB - .359/.421/.780
Iowa (AAA): 197 AB - .326/.376/.701

Wondered the same thing.

If so:

(1) Theo agreed to leave him exposed.
(2) We were comfortable with the risk that a team ahead of us picked him

Of course, there's the possibility that both teams have also agreed that Theo won't take him back if he doesn't stick on our major league roster.

If it is compensation then there was no reason to take the risk someone else would pick him. They could have just sent him to us. So no, I don't think it's compensation.

I think you're missing the point. If the Cubs had just traded him as compensation, the Sox would have had to put him on the 40-man in order to protect him in the Rule 5 draft and risked exposing someone else.

(edit) This may be moot since, according to BA, the Sox traded him to the Astros.

After selecting him in the rule 5 draft, you also need to add him to the 40 man. I don't see the benefit.

Why wouldn't the Cubs just wait until after the draft, then send him to the Sox without any of the Rule 5 restrictions? The Sox would have to keep him on the 25-man all year if they picked him as a Rule 5 pick.

Olivares played in 24 games for the Short-Season A Hudson Valley Renegades in 2011. In 84 at bats he hit .298/.355/.488 with 2 home runs and 18 runs batted in. The 22 year old has a career .262 average in five minor league seasons and threw out 42 percent of runners attempting to steal.

It looks like those numbers are in the form of obp/slg/OPS.

I know, I was just kidding. I always wonder why people add the two.
