I know if you have a trade now everyone has to go through waivers before it goes through. Is it the same with a minor league player. If we trade for one do they have to go through waivers too at this point.
My reason for asking is I noticed that Alfredo Amezaga is having a decent year at AAA for Cubs. I'm pretty sure he isn't in their plans or out plans for the future so it shouldn't take much to get him, maybe a PTBNL.
I think he would be an upgrade over Barmes right now, well I guess that anything would be an upgrade over Barmes.
Any thoughts on this?
Maybe I am grasping at straws, but I taste a little throw up in the back of my throat every time I read Barmes in the starting lineup!!!!
