Yes, but it's not something the GM needs to stick around for. 

So why the meeting? Just for the rule 5 draft?

Are you talking about the Liberty meeting? That's probably just a glorified Christmas party for the properties owned by Liberty. They said Anthopolous had accepted his invitation to it months ago. Minasian stayed back to monitor the Rule 5.

Hes got potential to be a nice depth piece

 

Just to be clear, it's a long shot. He hasn't had a minor league ERA under 4 since 2014. This seems like a deep dive from Braves scouts. If they're right about him, they deserve a bonus.

That's actually what I'm saying. This move looks crazy on the surface and seems like a very low percentage play...but so did drafting Gattis. Braves scouts are tireless.
