Risking waivers is a last resort and they're not going to risk someone they've invested a lot of time and effort into if they don't have to. Keeping him up won't hurt the team. It may hurt him or it may help him. Him learning with the pros in practice will give him at the very least a new perspective. I have a feeling they will keep him up until they have a trade ready to go. But all they have to do right now is send Irwin down for Burns when he gets off IR.
