Yankees Draft RHP Meyers from Rule 5 Draft

By Delia E.

Before the Rule 5 Draft, Brian Cashman said he was unsure whether he would draft a player. It turns out Cashman changed his mind.

During the 2011 Rule 5 Draft the Yankeees drafted RHP Brad Meyers in the 1st round of the MLB portion of the draft. Meyers was on the Washington Nationals roster.

The Yankees must have Meyers on the roster or send him back to his original team. The same scenario happened last year when the Yankees drafted Robert Fish from the LA Angels but sent him back. The Atlanta Braves drafted Fish in this years draft. Stay tuned for more coverage of the Winter Meetings.
