Rule 5 Draft Results

Here are the complete Rule 5 Draft picks from earlier today, via Baseball America. Nothing too mind blowing, though the Orioles taking Double-A pitcher Andrew Barb from the Mariners is an awfully interesting move.

Speaking of the Orioles, Barb was one of four players Baltimore selected, though one of those four -- catcher Lou Palmisano, the No. 5 overall pick from the Brewers' system -- was immediately traded to the Astros. As for the others, here's what the O's took:

AAA-Phase First Round: Roberto Valido, ss (White Sox)
AAA-Phase Second Round: Josh Perrault, rhp (Nationals)
AA-Phase: Andrew Barb, rhp, (Mariners)

The Nats had the first pick in each phase, and here's what they ended up with:

Major League Portion First Round: Terrell Young, rhp, Reds
AAA-Phase First Round: Ricardo Nanita, of (White Sox)

This assessment of Young over at Nats Journal is well worth reading. Sounds like he may really have a shot at making the bullpen, which, when you think about it, isn't saying a ton with the Nationals. Sounds like exactly the type of situation you'd want to be in as a former Class A reliever, doesn't it?

The Nationals picked up another Outfielder?

So, Insiders, unless my browser is having its typical problem displaying your latest post, where's the assessment of our NL East rivals after the meetings? How much of an upgrade for the Phils and Mets? Any leads on Lowe to the Phils or Burnett to the Braves? How about predicting significant non-tenders? Dave, how was your flight back?
