Santo might need a change of scenery. I don't think a 6th round pick has much value. Low risk move, imo. If he gets waived, does he clear? I'm not sure.
Who knows, it could happen, I just don't see the incentive for the Isles. For a contender or a bubble team, sure. I think Santo would clear, that's a problem. He had one good year but he's still relatively unproven. It'll depend on how many sellers there are and thus how many bodies there are on the market. If the market is scarce, then there might be a market for Santo.
