 MSTI called it on a post earlier this week called "Who will the Dodgers protect from the rule 5 draft."   Two pitchers were add to the 40 man roster and are now protected from the rule 5 draft.

Who are the two?  Steven Ames and Matt Magill both right-handed pitchers who pitched with Double-A Chattanooga in 2012.

Ames is a 24 year old pitcher who pitched as a reliever with Double-A Chattanooga last season.  He was 3-3 with 18 saves and a 1.56 ERA.  He struck out 72 batters in 63.1 innings, and ONLY WALKING 13!  I thought that was pretty good. He was a Southern League mid season All-Star. Ames is from Vancouver, WA and was drafted in the 17th round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft 517 over all out of Gonzaga U.

In 2011 Ames was sent to the Arizona Fall League where he pitched 17.1 innings (12 games) and had an ERA of 4.15 with and eight strikeouts. 

Magill is a 23 year old right-handed pitcher who pitched with Double-A Chattanooga last season.  Magill went 11-8 as a starter with a 3.75 ERA.  He had 168 strikouts in 146.1 innings and walked 61.  He pitched four games with 10 or more strikouts. He was Southern League pitcher of the week three times in the 2012 season, and was a Southern League mid season All-Star Magill was drafted out of Royal High School in Simi Valley, CA in the 31st round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft.

We might see these guys playing with the Isotopes in 2013.
