Both guys would be snapped up pretty quickly if we went the DFA route.Comes down to the roster construction... what makes the best 40 for the 2022 season and beyond.. Sometimes that's going to hurt.. and decisions are painful..
example (for illustrative purposes only): Only one LHP "should" be kept between Logan S Allen or Sam Hentges. Allen has nearly zero trade value.. while Hentges would be one of the top five picks in the rule V draft and would be kept by that club & lost to the tribe forever. Answer: Logan S is exposed to waivers.. If he doesn't have value to anyone else.. why would the Indians protect him?
From a quick overview.. there are 30 - 32 dead sure locks to the Indians' 40 man roster & 18 questions that are much more difficult than the one above.. Some of them will be heart rendering.. some heart breaking.. some inevitable..
A trade from depth for non-roster required players lessens the loss of the devils we know.. It's a temporary situation..
I anticipate both remaining on the 40 man until at least spring training. Unless they’re traded, of course.
