Amed Rosario among those Mets protect from Rule 5 Draft
Amed Rosario headed a list of five prospects the Mets protected from the Rule 5 draft. The others include righthanders Chris Flexen and Marcos Molina, outfielder Wuilmer Becerra, and catcher Tomas Nido.
All were added to the 40-man roster by Friday's deadline, making them ineligible to be chosen in the Rule 5 draft on Dec. 8. The moves brought the Mets' 40-man roster to capacity, meaning the Mets would need to clear space in event of any other additions through free agency.
