    God Bless America.........haynes released!

    The Reds today asked for unconditional release waivers on RHP Jimmy Haynes.

    Haynes went 0-3, 9.60 in 4 starts and 1 relief appearance for the Reds this season and the last 2 seasons went 2-15, 6.75 in 22 starts and 1 relief appearance.

    A corresponding roster move will be made prior to tomorrow night’s game at San Diego.

    I think that they could designate him for assignment, and since he would clear waivers, the Reds could then assign him to Louisville

    Instead, they chose to waive him immediately. They don't want him in the organization at all.

    I believe that generally they just submit the paperwork to MLB.

    Although I'm hopeful that, in this case, they took Haynes out back and beat him before doing so.

    Jimmah! Phew!

    If memory serves, teams have around 24-48 hours to put in a claim, and pay the remainder of Haynes salary.

    If no one does, I believe the Reds are stuck with it and he's free to sign with another team.

    I think that if he signs with another team, the Reds are off the hook. I could be mistaken. Anyone else who knows otherwise please feel free to correct.

    yeah, there was never a way to get out of his contract unless he was dealt or claimed on waivers. If he gets picked up by another team on waivers, we owe him nothing. If he's not claimed on waivers but signed later, I suspect that we owe him the difference between what the new team is paying him (major league minimum or minor league minimum) and his $2.5mill salary
