Sather couldn't claim him because of the contracts limit, and in any case he would've had to put him on waivers again before sending down (theoretically PHX then could've re-claimed him and send him down directly).
And I don't think the 7th rounder is for Eriksson, but rather for the Yotes to take back Wiikman. I'm sure they would've traded us Eriksson for futures, but again due to the contract limit Sather had to send someone back, and PHX probably just didn't want to take on unnecessary salary without the 7th as a sweetener.

In the end I hope Sather learns from this and just signs a couple less undrafted free agents in the future...
