For the record Josh Green would have to be waived to go to Lowell. According to today's Herald he has been. And for the record Robert Dome is also on a two-way.
Thanks for clearing that up. For some reason I was under the assumption that players on a two-way contract didn't have to pass through waivers.

I see it's just an experience/games played thing. I knew about the different salary levels, but not the systemic process of sending a player down.
