Yanks lose players due to Rule 5 draft.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

From MLB.com:

The Yankees made one selection in the Rule 5 Draft, taking right-hander Adonis De la Cruz from the Mariners’ Double-A roster in the first round of the Triple-A phase. De la Cruz, 23, was 3-4 with a 4.71 ERA  and 75 strikeouts over 57 1/3 innings (34 appearances) for Class-A Clinton this past year.

Right-hander Nick Green was selected by the D-backs from the Yankees in the Major League phase of the Rule 5 Draft. In the Minor League phases, catcher Chris Rabago (Royals), right-hander Gilmael Troya (Phillies), right-hander Anyelo Gomez (Red Sox), outfielder Mark Payton (Athletics) and right-hander Alexander Vargas (Cubs) were selected from the Yanks.

Green would have to stay on Arizona’s 25 man roster all year or he gets offered back to the Yankees. Green, 23, was 8-7, 3.32 between High A Tampa and AA Trenton last year.

The rest are gone.

Rabago, 25, only spent 7 games with Trenton after the Yanks got him from the Rockies.

Troya, 21 was in the Appalaichan Rookie League.

Gomez, 25, had only 7 games in AAA in 2018 due to injury. He was 5-3, 1.92 with 9 saves at 4 levels in 2017. This one could hurt.

Payton just turned 27. .259-6-25 in 62 games at AAA last year. Maybe one day he’ll make the majors, but he’ll be old for a rookie.

Vargas, 21, was 5-1, 4.01 for 3 levels (Low A, High A and AA) in 2018.
