Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. ET is the deadline for MLB teams to add eligible prospects (or any other players who may not be on the major-league reserve list for whatever reason) to the 40-man roster in order to protect them from next month’s Rule 5 Draft. This set of rules is perhaps the most complicated and most difficult to interpret in Major League Baseball’s CBA, so bear with us — Rule 5-eligible players include all players who are not on 40-man rosters and are experiencing their fourth Rule 5 draft if they were 19 or older on June 5 of the year they signed their first professional contract or their fifth Rule 5 draft if they were 18 or younger on June 5 of that year.
