Washington Nationals: Rule 5 Draft Results.

Rule 5 draft info

Arizona lost Ambriz (to the Twins Indians) and picked Zack Kroenke (from the Yankees), a lefty AAA reliever with good stuff and command problems. It seems like an insignificant move, but like the Scherzer/Jackson deal it's very much ERA driven. Ambriz started the year in AA and pitched well enough to be promoted after 5 starts. In AAA, he had a FIP of 3.8, but a ridiculous BABIP (.372) and strand rate raised his ERA to 5.57. Kroenke, meanwhile, had a FIP of 3.64 but a sparkling 1.99 ERA thanks to a .251 BABIP. I'm not complaining here, it seems we have a lot of starters similar to Ambriz in our system, and Kroenke may be a better fit, but it kinda sucks to root for a team that can't differentiate pitcher talent from BABIP.

Yankees acquire #1 pick in Rule 5 Draft

I was not aware that this was what they swapped Bruney for. It's actually a really smart move in that they should be able to replicate Bruney's production (and probably more) for about $1.5M less. From our perspective it sucks; though we're the 7th pick overall there was a good chance we were going to be the first team to select someone.
