Rule 5 Draft

December 10, 2009 by USA Post 

Rule 5 Draft:Add a new name to the rumor list. Not 30 seconds after another club official told me he thought the Yankees were going to take Zach Kroenke with the first overall pick, Joel Sherman is reporting that Dodgers outfielder Jamie Hoffmann will be the Yankees choice in the Rule 5.

Hoffmann’s minor league career has been more or less split between center field and right field. He hit .282/.390/.553 against left-handed pitchers last season in Triple-A and got a little bit of time with the big league club. His splits against right-handers are actually pretty good as well. He was taken off the Dodgers 40-man roster on September 1 when the Dodgers made a series of call-ups and activated Jon Garland.

Report to Team
