For me, it also has to do with asset management. Strait was a former 3rd round pick. If he's claimed on waivers, that's another high pick that yielded nothing. Nick Johnson (another former 3rd round pick) was also lost to waivers last season.

It would be nice to flip these guys for either similar prospects at a different position, or at least recoup some draft picks for upcoming drafts, instead of losing former decently high picks for nothing.
