uhhhh I'm watching Santorelli playing in the game right now lol, or am I just seeing things?
Just because a player is placed on waivers doesn't mean he's magically disappeared.
It means he's been made available to be picked up by other teams for the next 48 (?) hours. He's still on the team, at least for the time being.
Players with certain number of games played must be placed on waivers before being reassigned to a minor league team, or bought out, etc. Either Tallon is trying to get rid of Santorelli for free or Santorelli is going to be sent down to San Antonio.
