TEXAS RANGERS RULE 5 DRAFT ELIGIBILITY

Updated 20 August 2015

Caveat: I'll occasionally confirm a player's status with someone in the organization, but on the whole, this is my personally constructed list, not a team press release. Don't plan your life events around its accuracy. Let me know at @scottrlucas if you see a mistake.

--2 = Player was eligible previous season and not selected (--3 = 3rd year eligible)
IFA = International Free Agent
IFA19 = International Free Agent signed over age of 18 (affects eligiblity)
* = IFA who signed contract for subsequent season (most are signed this way). A typical 2013 J2 won't be R5 eligible until after 2018. Some players (Alfaro, e.g.) signed between January 1 and July 1 and began playing that season, and their clock starts immediately.
NDFA = non-drafted free agent

Not listed: Most international free agents who haven't reached the US, many AAA vets.
