It benefits the Rangers to take a roster player back in the deal. If you can add Stewart to the lineup, it mitigates some of the offense you lose by sending Callahan the other way. If a player like Fast can then push him out of the lineup this year or next year, great, then you can move Stewart for additional pieces. However, there's no sense in worrying about a player 'blocking a spot' for a prospect until the prospect actually starts challenging for a roster spot. Fast, Lindberg and Miller look like they could be ready next fall, but I don't see the sense in calling them up right now except in case of injury.
