Red Sox Lose Cesar Cabral, Daniel Turpen In Rule 5 Draft

The Red Sox' chief rivals are taking aim at the team's farm system, as Boston has lost Cesar Cabral to the Rays and Daniel Turpen to the Yankees in today's Rule 5 draft.

Cabral, 21, is a bit of an odd choice. While he saw tremendous success in Greenville last year, the numbers didn't really translate to Salem or winter ball. He's got a decent fastball, a good changeup, but as far as I can tell, no chance to stick with the Rays' 25-man roster.

Turpen, 24, came over to the Sox in the Ramon Ramirez deal and struggled through 19 innings in Portland.  While Turpen seems to be closer to the majors, I again can't really see him sticking on a 25-man roster, much less the Yankees'.

The Red Sox passed on their opportunity to select a player.
