Can they just take someone off and put him on it?
I think you can take someone off, but they are designated for assignment (which means they can be claimed off irrevocable waivers). If they clear then its NBD, but if they are claimed they are gone for good. Not sure who is "expendable" on the 40 man roster at this point, but I don't know if I would risk losing a player just to see a guy play in 20 games or so (especially when you have Asche there now trying make a name for himself at third base). But if there is a guy that is going to be let go anyway, then rock on and bring up the youth!

EDIT: Looking at the Phillies 40 man roster, I'd be fine with them ditching Michael Martinez or John McDonald. Other than that I wouldn't want to see anyone else designated for assignment and risk losing them.
