The Yankees throught for sure they would Steven Jackson or Brett Smith in the Rule 5 Draft. It came as a surprise that RHP Mike Gardner was taken by San Diego.

Gardner was a long reliever for Class AA Trenton last season. If he doesn’t stick with the Padres, they would have to give him back to the Yanks.

The Yankees selected RHP Bo Hall in the minor-league phase of the draft. He was 5-2 with a 3.46 as a Class AA reliever last season.
