If they get picked back up by the original team can that team then send them to the farm club? I believe this was the case when we picked Chris Bourque off waivers and Washington picked him back up. It's very unlikely that Strait, Tangrandi or Bortuzzo would make it through waivers unless they completely bombed in training camp. Grant should make it through with no problems.
I think technically any other team could pick him up if his original team tried to send him down again. But since the original team made it clear that they would pick him up again if another team tried to claim him, there is no point. So that's why a guy normally makes it through wavers when is original team tries for the second time.
