Can Merkin still be sent to the minors on a rehab assignment? He only has those 7 DWL innings since the surgery.

Sure. He'd have to be on the 40-man roster, he'd have to be on the DL (and thus paid a major league minimum salary) and there's a limit to how long the rehab assignment can last (but they could keep him on the 60-day DL for a long time).

huh. I was surprised to see Threets name there. Didn't realize he had been on the 40 for that long.

He's been in the organization since, like, forever. Dude was drafted in 2000.

Which (I believe) means that he can opt for FA if he is sent to the minors again.

To my knowledge, a player can only opt for free agency after his second DFA incident. Threets has only been optioned, not DFA'd, so I don't think he can opt out of his assignment.

Ah - Threets wasn't added to the 40-man until Nov 2004. So this will be the first year that he has to pass waivers (not DFA'd - DFA can only be used when the roster is full and another player is being added to the 40-man)
