MLB Rules question

Can anyone answer this:

Why are guys who are done for season not put on DL? i.e. Hafner, Liriano, etc.

Team roster size expands to 40 in September, large enough that teams can afford to keep injured guys active. Before September, a team puts a guy on IL so as to have room for another player. But it becomes unneccessary this month. The only reason why guys get put on DL this month (see Chipper Jones) is to recoup insurance money.
