Does a team that takes him off waivers have to put him on the 40 man?? If so those spots are at a premium, that why I don't think anyone will take a project like this on the 40 man. And same reason I think the O's DFA him. I guess we could DFA Gunkle instead if the team really is in love with Alvarezs arm.
That's a good question, I'm not sure if he has to be put on the 40 man. But I'm sure there are clubs that have the room. Most likely, they're clubs that are in a rebuild or down and out phase.San Diego comes to mind.
