The Minnesota Twins have selected Jason Jones in the Rule 5 Draft.
I can’t help but hope he sticks there. He deserved better than what he got in the Yankees organization, and hopefully he has a good spring training and makes the big league club. You won’t find a nicer guy, and it would be hard to argue that you could find a more consistent pitcher as well.
The Yankees have now lost three players in the Rule 5 draft: Jones, Reegie Corona and Zach Kroenke. All three played the majority of their seasons in Trenton in 2008.
