Also possible that since he is not on the roster and he may have no other prospects at the moment, that we have him as a semi permanent discovery player-in-waiting. An "option" with no immediate decision date looming.

Yes, it's possible the decision was made between then and now. Possible.
I was struck that Dyer rated him on Seeing Red. Made me at least pause. Now that he is off the cap, we can try amd get him healthy at no cost and only need to resign him if he is ready. I'm still betting against it, but stranger things have happened. Heck, we got Woly three separate times.
