The Chris Sale approach seems ideal this year. Use him as a bullpen piece, get him used to every day major league life and possibly stretch him to SP sometime this year or next year.
Isn’t that a bit risky? Like, couldn’t someone in theory of rule 5ed him this past offseason? Or was there some sort of protection from the mid season trade acquisition? Obviously, at some point this season he will get addedHe isnt on the 40 man rosters so he has been getting ready at minors spring training and will strt year at AAA

Leave it to you to completely miss what I was askingI do feel that this year will dictate a bit on these kids. If this team takes off. Which is unlikely and Heyward continues being a anchor then ya you could expect a Davis call up in June or earlier.
Kilian a safe bet is after the deadline. But yet again. If the Cubs take off and Alzolay is still on the 60 and Miley is still out ya we could see him.
If they are fumbling around then no. Jed will keep on the 40 man depth and hold clocks back.
If they are near .500 and those 2 might push them into a seed ya Jed will promote.
The games have to play out.. But there is little concern over rule V on either player.
There was no rule V draft last year.Leave it to you to completely miss what I was asking
I wasn’t asking about this coming offseason. I’m asking about what kept him protected this past offseason since he wasn’t on the 40 man roster obviously
Thankyou for finally answering my question. And I know that the rule 5 is a draft. It’s literally in the nameThere was no rule V draft last year.
The rules state by that date has to be protected.
RuleV is just a draft. It normally happens on Dec 22 during the meetings. To be elegible a team has to have the player off of the 40 man by the 5th day after the WS completion.
So in layman's terms.
No draft last year. Due to CBA.
This year teams don't have to worry until after the WS to protect guys.
