I figured they put him on waivers because they were looking to dump his contract..... And please excuse my lack of mlb waiver knowledge, but couldn't they trade him in the off season anyways?

He's a good enough player, without an oppressive salary, who Texas wouldn't give away for nothing. No deal with Minnesota means Sori stays in Texas.
I don't understand the problem.
So, again, I don't understand why they'd put him on waivers to begin with if they didn't want to get rid of him?
