Facts:

1.) David Patton was a Rule V pick from the Colorado Rockies.

2.) A team must keep a Rule V pick on the Major League roster (aka the 25-man roster) for the entire season or they must offer him back to his original team.

3.) A team must keep a Rule V pick on the active Major League roster (aka, not on the DL) for 90 days or they must offer him back to his original team.

4.) When David Patton’s horrible, awful, nightmarish groin injury developed last Sunday and the Cubs were forced to place him on the disabled list, he had been on the active Major League roster for… 90 days.
