    Waivers last 72 hours. I'm guessing that he was waived and DFA'd at the same time.

    When a player is DFAd a team opens a 40 man spot immediately, but they have 10 days to figure out what to do with the player. They can trade the player, or waive him. Since waivers last 3 days, they would have to waive him NLT 7 days after the DFA.

    If waived and unclaimed, he can be sent to the minors.

    He does not have the secondary pitches. And his fastball is too straight. He'll clear waivers and possibly pull a Mike Trombley. But that's the best we can hope for.

    According to MLB Trade Rumors, the Padres and Diamondbacks have interest in Liam Hendriks. I don't think he's gonna clear waivers if that's what we do with him.

    So the question is was trading Hendricks the plan all along? DFAing him puts the pressure on whoever might want him to give their best offer over the winter meetings. Out of any of the pitchers they could trade he has good AAA numbers and is only 24 with one option left. Probably won't be much but who knows.

    Isn't he already off of waivers? He's cleared now isn't he?

    Not necessarily. He was DFA'd on the 5th. They have 10 days to decide what to do with him. So he doesn't have to be placed on waivers until the 11th or 12th to allow enough time for the waiver process to complete in the 10 day DFA window.

    I wondered the same thing.
