NEWS AND LINKS

It's been a slow news week, but look for that to change next week when the Winter Meetings are held in National Harbor, Maryland. Here's an overview of the meetings, including a link to a detailed schedule of events. And here is a look at the meetings from a minor league perspective. The meetings will, of course, culminate with the Rule 5 Draft which will take place at 9:00 a.m. EST on Thursday, the 8th. Here is my primer on how the Rule 5 Draft works, including a list of players that are at risk for the Astros.

Baseball America weighs in on the top prospects who appeared in the Arizona Fall League in 2016. Astros RHP Francis Martes comes in at #6 on the list.
