Vernon Wells, John McDonald Placed On Waivers

According to Sportsnet.ca, the Blue Jays have placed Vernon Wells and John McDonald on waivers.  Keep in mind that many players on placed on waivers every year even when the team has no intent of making a trade.

Wells stands a good chance of clearing waivers, though a trade is unlikely.  He has a complicated, massive backloaded contract.  From 2009-14 he will earn $100MM in salary, plus another $17MM as part of his signing bonus.  He has a full no-trade clause and opt-out clause after '11.

McDonald, a defensive whiz at shortstop, is signed for '09 at $1.9MM.  He probably will be claimed.
