Just realized a player on a MLB or minor league DL can't be sent outright to the minors (taken off the 40-man) unless he is healthy and ready to be activated. So if Jorge wasn't healthy and ready to be activated (I presumed he was close but maybe he had an unreported setback?), we had no choice but to trade or release him, once we did the DFA.

Still implies no team claimed him on release waivers, although if he is still hurt, maybe they were just willing to wait it out and save the 40-man spot by signing him to a minor league deal after his release.

 

Good call spycake.
