Rule 5 protection around the league

I know we had a topic a couple weeks back with some speculation, but I couldn't find it.  Figured I'd throw up a new one as names come in who are protected.  Maybe we can find a few gems who aren't if we go from there.  A few teams still missing (including the Pirates), but most teams already have their moves in.  Here are the players added to 40 man rosters today:
