Jorge Alcala, who was sent to Minnesota along with Gilberto Celestino in the Ryan Pressly deal, was left unprotected by the Twins. The 11th-ranked prospect in their org was just added to that 2080.com list of most attractive available starting pitchers in the Rule 5 (the same list they have Akeem Bostick on).

Marlins take Riley Ferrell with the 4th pick.

Giants take Drew Ferguson in the 2nd round.

One of only three clubs with 2 players taken (Dodgers and BJs the others).

Astros themselves of course did not take anyone.

I'll state unequivocally the Astros will NOT lose anyone in the minor league phase.

I was wrong. Ryan Thompson got nabbed. The Astros had only 33 players on their AAA roster (they could have protected 38) so obviously they didn't care about losing Thompson. Ryan also underwent TJS back in May so they may have believed no one would take him for that reason.

Astros select C Alejandro Flores from Nationals in the minor league phase. Provides minor league catching depth. Played at A-ball Hagerstown in 2018 where he hit .216/.309/.390 in 66 games.
