    So there's the answer

    Deal was done

    There was no option of "waiting it out" to avoid giving him a spot on the 40 man roster

    Matt Gage gets the DFA. Still think the move was a bit premature.

    Great signing. Definitely worth the risk IMO. Green is one of the elite pen arms in the game when healthy.

    I don't know for sure but I don't think you can sign a player directly to the 60 man IL. I think they have to be on your 40 man roster first to be eligible for the 60.

    So no, I don't think Toronto could have waited a couple weeks to make this official in order to avoid a DFA

    I don't think that was ever a thing, but in theory 60 Day IL Ryu to add Green and then 60 Day IL Green then.

    Gotta agree with connor here (who I suspect may not be on the level with his comment) but that was a gross joke.

    No one has the space to grab Gage right now. Same day as a more appealing Frank German is DFAd too. If you wait a week everyone gets to put their player on the 60 and claim your player.

    And then every thread becomes the Jim and Connor show. Looks like we are tied up in our draft so I will scrub the thread including your unnecessary commentary.

    A team could always clear space and claim him.
