Not only does his contract make him a terrible investment for a rebuilding team, it also-- worst of all-- makes him untradeable. Chances are we'll start hearing his name mentioned as one of the worst contracts in baseball within the next year or two.
I don't know but the Jays somehow found a suitor for Vernon Wells and the White Sox claimed Alex Rios off waivers so anything is possible. Maybe some team thinks he can bounce back and are willing to give up a C+ or B prospect for him. I'd honestly trade him as a salary dump much like the Derrek Lee trade at the deadline.
