Barton Not Going To Tampa?

Per a report from Baseball America, it appears that Barton may in fact not go #1 in the Rule 5 Draft today. Apparently, Tampa is looking for a bullpen arm that can help the major league bullpen. It is not known if Tampa would consider and Cleveland pitchers to fill this need, but more than likely they will look elsewhere.

In any case, it appears highly unlikely that Barton would slip through undrafted and may in fact end up somewhere. The one thing working in the Indians favor here is the knee injury that may scare some teams off, especially after the Ryan Goleski wrist injury last year.
