Blazek out of the bullpen didn't pitch well this year?

Blazek pitched fine for 6 1/3 innings. And then really, really, really badly for 2 1/3. You can't wipe away the 2 1/3.

Suter has pitched fine for the better part of 54 1/3 innings this year.

There is a reason that Scahill has been outrighted 3 times this year, and Blazek once. Between the two of them, 116 teams have passed them over when given the chance to claim them on waivers for free.


He was bad in his 2 1/3 but it was a start not in relief. Hader should of made the start IMO. You are right in the fact that no one picked them up on waivers but I think both will be pitching for someone else next year.

waiver claims cost the acquiring club $50,000.

In the scale of major league economics, and netting out players lost on waivers, essentially free.

brad mills and i both disagree with your interpretation.

If a team thinks that a player on outright waivers with no options remaining is a major league quality asset to their club right now, $50,000 is not an obstacle to acquiring that player. If that player plays at even the tiniest margin above replacement level, it is in itself a value-producing transaction.

I have no idea what Brad Mills has to do with this.

Mills was traded for $1 as opposed to the $50,000 claim fee. I assume that's why he was brought up.

IIRC, the waiver fee in 2014 was $20,000.

Later that year, Mills was claimed on waivers by the Blue Jays from the A's.
