What we learned: October 14, 2014

Today's lessons include the Rule 5 draft, Ryan Braun's thumb, and more.

The Brewers have some decisions to make before the Rule 5 draft.

During the winter meetings, the Rule 5 draft will take place. The draft is a way to make sure teams don't stockpile too much talent in their systems and help some minor-league prospects find a new team, where they could end up as a contributor. The Brewers will have some decisions to make this offseason on who to protect, and Derek broke down those decisions yesterday. There's a few moves that seem like no-brainers, and a few more obvious ones as well. The decision doesn't need to be made for a few months, and some free-agent signings could change the Brewers thinking on any of these. For now, we will just have to wait and see what the Brewers decide to do.
