RT @jjcoop36: Notes on Brebia and Patrick Johnson from Indy top 10.
Marlins lose RHP Felipe Gonzalez to the Dodgers
Marlins lose Zack Cox. Was once seen as potential 3B of the future when the Marlins aquired him for Edward Mujica.
RT @jjcoop36: Miami takes RHP Patrick Johnson (Pirates). Just signed off my Indy Top 10 list. Now a Minor League Rule 5 pick!
Marlins lose pitcher in Minor League phase of Rule 5 Draft
Continuing the trend so far at the Winter Meetings, the Marlins have passed in the Rule 5 draft
Third baseman Jorge Jimenez became the player to be named later in the Matt Lindstrom trade when Houston picked him on behalf of the Marlins in the Rule 5 Draft. Originally from Puerto Rico, Jimenez hit .298 with 13 home runs and 87 RBIs for the Portland Sea Dogs (Red Sox). The Marlins will likely give him a shot at winning the starting 3B job.
On the other end of the Draft, the Marlins, as expected, lost John Raynor when the Pirates took him with the second pick. Raynor performed well in the minors but was left exposed because the Marlins decided to protect pitchers.
