You may recall that we kept a running list of players who cleared waivers last year based on published reports. It’s not publicly available information, but journalists were able to dig up a few names. I expect the same to happen this year.
A reminder of those who cleared a year ago:
As for this year, I named many candidates to clear here and here. Also, Tracy Ringolsby names ten candidates to clear in a new column today. It’s entirely subjective, but I don’t believe Aubrey Huff and Brian Giles would clear. I am on the fence about Jarrod Washburn – sometimes teams act irrationally with starting pitching in August. For example, the Dodgers’ claim of Esteban Loaiza a year ago.
