I don't know all of the dates that player moves have to be made, but teams always purge guys from their 40-man roster around this time. It is SOP.

The point I believe is that at the time, Freddy was a key component to getting the Sox to the postseason. The fact that Frank & Maggs went down for good after the trade does not change the quality of the deal.

I hear ya. It's disappointing that they exposed even a post-surgery Wing to waivers while protecting a non-prospect like Yan though.

I agree completely. I am sure the Sox are quite disappointed they lost him and may be second-guessing themselves.

I guess I was wrong about Wing having surgery. Can someone who is a more definitive source than rotoworld confirm this? If it's true, maybe I was hasty in my defense of the Sox. Sigh. Although, if Texas claimed him that means that quite a few teams passed him over. Claim order is the reverse of this year's standings, right? Without surgery, I would have thought someone else would have claimed him before the Rangers.
Ryan Wing had surgery. They did not find any damage to his muscles or tissues. They polished his shoulder joint which was causing the soreness in his shoulder.
