Rule 5 Draft History

+ History of picks since 1997
Available Drafts:     2017   2016   2015   2014   2013   2012   2011   2010   2009   2008   2007   2006   2005   2004   2003   2002   2001   2000   1999   1998   1997   
  • To prevent organizations from stockpiling young players or blocking their career progression, the Rule 5 draft was created to allow teams to select players from other organization affiliate rosters at a set price. The catch would be that the selecting team would have to keep these players on their 25-man roster for the entire season. The player may not be optioned to minors or Designated for assignment.
  • The draft takes place in December at the winter GM meetings. Complete description of the draft is available here
  • Eligibility:
  • Not on an organization's 40-man roster AND
