If I didn't know better I'd think that today was my birthday.
Don't have any more birthdays than you have to. Say if you didn't know any better you thought it was Christmas or Mardi Gras

You got that right Pig. If there's a one in ten chance that either player comes back to contribute then you can be glad they stayed in the system. Otherwise they are expensive filler for the Red Wings.
So what happens with them next? The lead entry in the thread says they are being outrighted. I guess my only question is why are we even keeping them in the organization instead of releasing them? Is it just salary reasons - we're paying them so maybe the Triple-A club can use them? Are they being held in reserve in case the sky falls and they are needed in the future?
You're paying the guy. Why not keep him around in case he rebounds? Now that he's off the 40 man roster, it doesn't matter one lick whether he's playing for you, playing for the Padres, or sitting at home. He's not blocking anyone in the system. At that point, you may as well keep the guy around "just in case".
