I can only recall it once in recent times (Steve Pinnizotto - Washington) two years ago. I'm not saying to not call up a guy for emergency reasons (Moen may have been hurt, who knows), I'm saying you call up a vet, you don't do that to a rookie.
Just the opposite.

Young guys like Schultz don't have to go thru waivers.
