The formula when salary is buried in the minors I believe is Players Caphit - Minimum salary + $375,000.
Or, for ease, Players Caphit - $900,000.
By sending Jones ($1,500,000) to the minors, we're still on the hook for $600,000 cap hit, unless he gets claimed. $600,000 is also Hamilton's caphit.
So by keeping Hamilton instead of Jones, we have $300,000 more in capspace.
