Mariners take Corona

Seattle just took Reegie Corona, who was with AA Trenton last season. He was the second pick in the Rule 5 draft.

Yes, it’s Reegie, not Reggie. He hit .274 with a .345 OBP for the Thunder.

UPDATE, 12:09 p.m.: I’m sure some of you are out there saying, “What is this Rule 5 Draft?”

Well, here is the deal: Those players eligible must have been drafted in 2004 at age 18 younger or 2005 at 19 or older and not be on a club’s 40-man roster. It costs $50,000 to take a player with the catch that he has to stay on the 25-man roster all season or be offered back.
