The Padres selected two players in the Triple-A portion of the Rule 5 Draft. 3B Diego Goris (21) and RHP Federico Castaneda (28) both from the Kansas City Royals organization.
Rule 5 Draft info via Wikipedia:
To prevent excessive turnover in the minor league levels, each draftee costs $50,000. If the draftee does not stay on the selecting team’s 25-man (major league) roster all season, the player must be offered back to his original team at half-price. Organizations may also draft players from AA or lower to play for their AAA affiliates (for $12,000) and may draft players from A teams or lower to play for their AA affiliates (for $4,000).
Signed as a SS, Goris primarily played 3B and LF in 2012. After four seasons in the Dominican Summer League with the Pirates, the Royals acquired Goris and gave him his first taste of baseball in the states. in 2012 Goris started to show some pop with 31 XBH in 246 ABs, 13 of which were home runs.
Castaneda spent 2012 pitching in the Mexican League, where he posted a 5.71 ERA in 51 appearances. In 52 innings of work, he struck out 52, while walking only 15.
