Names to watch in the Rule 5 draft

Hitters:
Koby Clemens, C, HOU
Put up great numbers this season and could catch someones eye. It'd shock me if he could stick though.
Matt McBride, C/1B/OF, CLE
Could be a solid Catcher in the bigs, decent D, bat showing well of late.
Danny Dorn, OF, CIN
Hits everywhere he goes.
Johnny Whittleman, 3B, TEX
Has potential and plate discipline, might be worth a gamble.

Pitchers:
Dallas Buck, P, CIN
I've been a fan since college. Hasn't done as well as I expected but knows how to pitch.
Aneury Rodriguez, P, TB
Maybe the best player available. Still young, projectable and has good stuff.
Will Inman, P, SD
Inman's stuff isn't great but his delivery is unusual and could give him an edge if used out of the pen
Kanekoa Texeira, P, NYY
Did well enough in AA that it isn't too much of a stretch thinking he could help in a big league bullpen.
