Not that I'm bummed by this at all, but I thought if someone was on our 40 man, they couldn't be claimed. Was he not on the 40 man roster? I'm guessing we get no compensation?

The Sox receive the claim fee which used to be twenty five thousand dollars, I am not sure it still is that amount though without checking.

Well, he's been terrible in Charlotte. Were the Sox ever that high on him anyway?

The dude on MLBTradeRumors.com, when reviewing this pickup, said he has 6 fingers. Did anyone else know this or am I just waaaaay late on finding out?

They might have wanted to remove him from the 40-man, which required putting him through waivers. And thus, this was the end result.

Ok. I've never heard of that, but it makes sense.

You're late, but it wasn't advertised all that often...
