Better than Feliz?

McCovey Chronicles, I give you Vasili Spanos! Who?

Vasili Spanos is a 26-year-old 3B/1B/DH in the A's organization, not on their 40 man roster, and eligible for selection in this year's Rule 5 draft. Last year at AA Midland, he hit 308/405/440. His two prior years in the minors, he hit 300/400/500 at each level, except for a 43 game callup from High A to AA at the end of his second year.

There's a story about him here:

His MiLB stats are here:

There's a pretty good list of Rule 5 eligibles here:

So what do you think? Worth taking a flyer on in the draft? Are you listening, Mr. Sabean?
