Why do we always have this discussion? Minor leaguers never ever ever get claimed because to claim one guy, you have to expose another. For a player to be claimed, he has to be significantly better than someone already on your roster whom you previously protected. Not a little better, but significantly so because teams don't like making changes for no reason, bringing in new guys nobody personally knows at the expense of someone who's a friend in the locker room and would be missed.
No, Segal is never going to get claimed. Neither will the 900 other minor leaguers that we'll put through waivers the net few years.
