SAN DIEGO — Tune in to a live simulcast via the stream above as Major League clubs gather on the last day of the Winter Meetings in San Diego to take part in the Rule 5 Draft. The event, being held in person for the first time in three years, gives clubs an opportunity to add low-risk, high-ceiling talent to their organizations.

Below is this year’s Rule 5 Draft order, which is dictated by the reverse order of last season’s standings, unlike the amateur Draft (Rule 4), whose order is now determined in part by a Lottery. A team must have room on its roster to make a pick, so each team’s 40-man status is included in parentheses. Clubs pay $100,000 to select a player in the Major League phase of the Rule 5 Draft, but if that player doesn’t stay on the active Major League roster for the full season, he must be offered back to his former team for $50,000.

There is also a Minor League phase of the Rule 5 Draft, with the costs rising from $12,000 to $24,000 for a Triple-A pick (anyone not protected on a big league or Triple-A roster is eligible). The Double-A phase has been eliminated. Players selected in this portion of the Rule 5 Draft aren’t subject to any roster restrictions with their new organizations.
