The Cleveland Indians did not make any selections in any phase of the Rule V draft today held in Orlando, FL, but they had two players selected from other teams in the Rule 5 draft.

Infielder Josh Rodriguez was selected with the 1st pick in the Major League phase of the Rule 5 draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 2010 Rodriguez hit a combined .297 (113-380) with 60 runs scored, 30 doubles, a triple, 13HR and 57RBI in 107 games between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus.

Right-handed pitcher Jose Flores was selected with the 2nd pick in the Major League phase by the Seattle Mariners. Flores went 1-1 with 6 saves and a 2.14 ERA (42.0IP, 35H, 10R/ER, 7BB, 51K) in 28 appearances out of the bullpen for the Low-A Lake County Captains.

Rodriguez and Flores must remain on the Pirates and Mariners Major League rosters the entire 2011 season or be offered back to the Indians at half the original price.
