Why would they send him to the AFL if they didn't intend to keep him on the 40 man? In 14 relief appearances, he only allowed runs in 2 of them....
I know I'm probably making a bigger deal out of it than I should, but I just shutter at the idea of another team snagging one of our players and then doing well, when I know we have a handful of scrubs on our 40 man that didn't deserve Derek's spot.
