I understand, but you aren't going to get a shot at a guy like that for next to free. Ankiel, you may have a shot at for the price of a waiver claim and a roster spot.
I mean, what does it hurt if he takes the spot of Jacob Cruz or Chris Denorfia coming out of spring training? If he doesn't work, you can waive him later and bring one of those guys up.
