Rule 5 draft


Farmstros just posted a list of Astros Rule 5 draft eligible players. I was shocked to see so many good prospects listed--I guess that is the price you pay when you have a talented and deep farm system so we can't complain too much. Players that stood out on the list to me ordered by last name:

Jose Cisnero, RHP(CC/OKC)
Jarred Cosart, RHP(CC/OKC)

Rene Garcia, C(Lancaster/CC)
Jacob Goebbert, OF(CC/OKC)
Robbie Grossman, OF(Altoona/CC)

Marc Krauss, OF(Mobile/CC/OKC)
Chia-jen Lo, RHP(GCL Astros/Lancaster)
Brett Oberholtzer, LHP(CC/OKC)
Carlos Perez, C(Lansing/Lancaster)
Ross Seaton, RHP(CC/OKC)

Jason Stoffel, RHP(CC)
Jonathan Villar, SS(CC)
Josh Zeid, RH(CC)

We will need to protect many of these guys by putting them on our 40, and get rid of a lot of trash from the bottom third of the roster to make room for them. Lo and Perez are further away but still could be taken IMO. It looks like quite the roster turnover is in order--and we still will be looking to add players through free agency and the rule V draft so we are really gonna have to churn this roster. Many well known names that saw a lot of playing time this year are very likely to not be Astros next year, such as Shaffer, Snyder, Bogey etc. So...

Who on the 40 man roster do you think will not be with the team next year? Who do ya'll think will be left unprotected and susceptible to being picked up by another team?
