Here are the various rumors about the Rule 5 Draft (tomorrow in Indianapolis at the Winter Meetings)
-Fact-The Yankees have the first pick
-Jonathan Mayo says that the Yankees may have the Nationals (who techinically own the pick but will draft a player of the Yankees choosing) draft Zach Kroenke. This is to protect Kroenke from being drafted by other teams. The Nationals would then return Kroenke to the Yankees immediately.
-Chad Jennings predicts that the Yankees will draft either Chad Tracy (the minor-league son of Jim Tracy, not the former Diamondback), or Matt McBride.
-Steve Henson reports that the Yankees will likely draft Arquimedes Caminero.
-Frankie Piliere hears that the Yankees will draft John Raynor, though he does not know where they would put him if they drafted him.
