Rule 5 Update

As expected RP Fernando Hernandez was selected by another team, the Oakland A's.  The A's are the same team that selected Jay Marshall from the Sox in last year's Rule 5 draft.  [Marshall is now the property of the Red Sox having been waived by the A's after he spent the year on the A's roster.]  Having a full 40 man roster, the White Sox could not select any players in the major league phase of the draft.

During the Triple A phase of the draft the White Sox "lost" Ray Liotta (to the Royals) and Ryan Rodriguez (to the O's), both left handed pitchers who played for Winston-Salem last season.  Also selected by other clubs were Garry Baker (to the Mets), a right handed pitcher for Winston-Salem and Daron Roberts (to the Marlins), an OF at Winston-Salem. In turn they did select Santo Luis, a right handed pitcher out of the Astro's organization.  Pitching for class A Lexington the 23 year old was strictly a RP who had a 99/34 K/BB ratio in 75.1 IP.  Righties hit .206 against him while southpaws hit .258 against him.  Looks like he gave up a few long balls as there were 12 HRs hit off him.

They did not have any players selected during the Double A phase nor did they select anyone.
