Phillies Select Two in Rule 5 Draft

2016 Chachi New Additions #7
2016 Chachi New Additions #8
The Ken Giles trade still isn't official, but the Phillies did officially add two more players to their roster today.  The Phillies selected first and 12th in this year's Rule 5 draft which was held this morning to wrap up the annual winter meetings.  Both players will need to remain on the Phillies 25-man roster for the entire 2016 season or be offered back to their original teams.  Odubel Herrera was a true find from last year's Rule 5 draft, and I'm hoping one or both of these guys stick around (and contribute) as well.

Tyler Goeddel was the first overall pick, chosen from the Rays.  Goeddel, who can play all three outfield positions, hit .279 with 12 home runs and 72 RBIs for the Rays' Double-A team in Montgomery last season.  He also stole 28 bases.  Goeddel began appearing in Bowman sets in 2011 and his most recent cards can be found within Rays minor league team sets.

The Phillies also selected left-handed pitcher Daniel Stumpf from the Royals.  Stumpf pitched for Double-A last season, striking out 76 in 70 2/3 innings and holding opponents to a .212 average.  It doesn't appear as if the lefty has appeared on any baseball cards other than in Royals minor league team sets.

"Stumpf" looked German, so I got curious: Google Translate translates it as dull, blunted, obtuse, truncated.

Of course it does.

Hurry up 2017!
