Independent leagues? Do players/veterans with a certain amount of service time have the option to sign with another team’s 40 man roster if they aren’t on their current team’s 40 man?
Just wondering who might even be available without having to make a trade.
Some of the vets that signed minor league deals this winter probably have opt outs coming up soon. A trade won't be hard though. For example the Mets and Giants both have multiple veteran guys behind very good starters. We could probably nab one for a song. It probably just depends on if Caratini is going to miss the 3-4 weeks that was initially mentioned or more like 6+.
