Can you ever move a player from the 25-man roster to the 40-man without him having to clear waivers?

Can you ever have an empty spot on your 25-man roster?

Since they have very little upside and are never going to be part of a contending team, you could just release a Tilson or a Minaya and never look back. Replacements are a dime a dozen. If you have to fill those 25-man spots with players who aren't ready to stick in the majors, then just use cannon fodder making the major league minimum.
