The MLB Rule 5 Draft closed out the 2012 Baseball Winter Meetings on Thursday and the Boston Red Sox came away losing two players but gaining three. In the major league phase of the Rule 5 Draft, the Red Sox lost RHP Josh Fields to the Houston Astros and RHP Ryan Pressly to the Minnesota Twins. They selected Jeff Kobernus a second baseman from the Washington Nationals. They then flipped him to Detroit Tigers for utility player Justin Henry. The Astros and Twins each will have to pay the Red Sox $50,000 and must keep them on their 25-man rosters for the entire season. If not, the Red Sox can buy back the players for $25,000. In the Triple-A phase of the draft, the Red Sox took LHP Jack McGeary from the Washington Nationals and RHP Jon Bachanov from the Chicago White Sox.
