Poll: Most Surprising Player To Clear Waivers

We're about halfway through August, and there have been a fair share of waiver trades already made. Alex Rios, Jamey Carroll, Wesley Wright, Travis Blackley and Emilio Bonifacio have all changed teams after being claimed.

To this point, ten players have reportedly cleared waivers: Erik Bedard, Adam Dunn, Dan Haren, Josh Johnson, Matt Lindstrom, Justin Morneau, Jimmy Rollins, Brendan Ryan, Michael Young and Barry Zito. Obviously, any of them could still end up being moved, as they're now eligible to be dealt to any team after clearing.

It's not surprising that some of these players would clear waivers (Zito, in particular, comes to mind), but at least a few of them seem to have enough value that they'd be an asset to a contender looking to bolster its roster for a playoff push and therefore worth claiming. And, as we saw with the Rios trade, the price to acquire players right now isn't exactly sky-high.
