Cabrera, Patton taken in Rule 5 draft

The San Diego Padres took infielder Everth Cabrera with the third selection in this year's Rule 5 draft, a few picks later, the Cincinnati Reds picked up right-handed relief arm David Patton.

The speedy Cabrera ranked as Purple Row's 21st best prospect according to our most recent PuRPs polling and played the 2008 season in Asheville. Patton had a strong campaign for Modesto, but looked particularly sharp in fall league work in both Hawaii and Arizona.
