Waiting 'til Next Year Headquarters CELEBRATES!

The Rule V draft is quick approaching and the deadline to add players to the 40-man roster was today for all MLB teams.  The Cubs added four to the roster, which ultimately protects them from the draft.

In short, Vogelbach is a Cub for a little while longer.  If his name wasn't added to the 40-man roster, then he surely would have been taken by an American League team looking to fill a hole at first base.

I'm elated the Vogelmonster is still a Cub and that the organization won't lose him to the draft come early December.  I'd like to think the Vogelmonster is pretty stoked, too.

  1. Congrats. I'm sure keeping Vogelbach around is a nice plan-B for if Rizzo is out for extended periods of time, and if nothing else it'd be a huge waste for the Cubs if he's just claimed in the rule 5 draft as opposed to getting something of value for him in a trade.
