Early reports were that the Bucs wouldn't select anyone in the Rule V Draft today. Well, they did select someone (Sean White of the Atlanta Braves), but they traded him to the Seattle Mariners for an undisclosed amount of cash.
The Pirates, however, took two right-handed pitchers in the minor league phase of the draft -- Moises Robles from the Mets and Kevin Cave from the Marlins. (Robles interests me. I'm not sure on Cave.)
