I can't imagine that they'll do anything but DFA Wise when he returns. There's no point in continuing to clown around with 35 year old veterans who can't hit.
If we don't trade any of our current OF'ers then I agree. If we do, however, there is no point in dumping him if we have no one in the minors ready to take his place. You keep him around as a temporary place-holder, more or less, until we have better options.
Look at the Cubs for instance, they have a whole bunch of castoffs, career backups, AAAA type players on their roster while they await players from either the minors or an FA signing to take their place.
