Victor Alcantara cleared outright waivers. Meaning....no other team wanted him at no cost.

Yes.

The Tigers placed right-handed reliever Victor Alcantara on waivers to remove him from the roster; he was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo after going unclaimed.

In effect, he becomes a non-prospect. No team, including the Tigers, deem to give him a roster spot. He might still occasionally be called up to eat some innings by some team, but there is absolutely no expectations he will turn into anything at all.

In essence, the Tigers traded Maybin for an obnoxious drunk sitting behind the Angels Stadium BP, with a season ticket.
