It would be nice if that were an option but I’m not sure their collective bargaining allows for that. It’s why you see a lot of these stiffs like Myers stick around on a roster, the teams will have to pay them regardless if they’re sitting, playing, or even released. There was talk about sending Myers down last year, he’d have to pass through waivers (pretty easy to do since nobody would claim him) but it never happened. They’d still have to pay him.yup.
And dodgers will probably sign mookie betts long term.
Honestly, Padres should negotiate a buy out with Myers and move on.
Much to TTK’s delight (I admit I’m warming to the idea too), the DH might hit the NL as early as next year. Maybe he could be salvaged as a DH.
