Put some guy on waivers, they go through the 30 MLB teams worst to best, until someone claims him. If nobody does, they stay in their orginization. I'm not completely sure about this but I'm pretty sure. Also, I think the team that put the player on waivers can take the player off waivers if he wasn't on the 40- man roster but you can't take him off if he was. Hope this helps! Remember, I'm not 100% sure.

If there is no right of recall and no team claims the player, the player is now able to be demoted to the farm system team of the parent team and paid the minor league salary.
